Socialist Worker


Issue No. 1839

JOURNALISTS AT two Newsquest-owned newspaper groups in the north of England were set to walk out on Monday of this week. Management refused to offer an increased pay deal. In Bradford workers are to strike for five days. They have been offered just 2 percent.

In Kendal, where bosses have offered 2.5 percent, the walkout was planned for four days. The NUJ journalists' union Bradford chapel (workplace branch) has agreed to name ten more days of strike action.
