Newsquest journalists to strike for jobs

Issue No. 2256

Journalists at Newsquest in South London are set to strike on Wednesday and Thursday of this week over redundancies.

The strike announcement follows a massive yes vote for the action by NUJ members.

Staff are already working to rule, and members passed a unanimous vote of no confidence in bosses after a decision to make redundancies.

The company has also announced job cuts at the Croydon Guardian, Elmbridge Guardian, Epsom Guardian, Kingston Guardian, Streatham Guardian, Surrey Comet, Sutton Guardian, Wandsworth Guardian and Wimbledon Guardian.
