Journalists strike for jobs

Issue No. 2270

NUJ members at Newsquest Cheshire and Merseyside took part in two days of strikes last week against compulsory redundancies.

The dispute involved the Warrington Guardian, Northwich Guardian, Sale and Altrincham Messenger, St Helens Star and the Wirral Globe.
