Journalists strike at The Independent

Issue No. 2365

Journalists at the Independent newspaper were set to strike for two hours on Friday of this week, demanding talks over massive job cuts. They are members of the NUJ union.

The NUJ is also re-balloting workers at Herald newspapers owned by Newsquest in Glasgow, after bosses threatened to use anti-union laws to challenge the ballot on a technicality.

Workers had voted by 86 percent to strike.
