Sheffield journalists set to take strike action?

The Sheffield Star's journalists are set to take industrial action over plans to cut back on jobs at Johnston Press.

01 February 2011

Union bargaining could soon be seen in the north of England, as journalists with the Sheffield Star prepare to take strike action.

Members of the National Union of Journalists decided earlier this week to act on strike ballots unless plans to make compulsory redundancies at Johnston Press - the editorial hub in the city - are shelved.

The result of the vote - set in motion by the NUJ amid fears that up to ten jobs could be lost from the company - comes just days after John Furbisher resigned as the Star's editor.

Organiser Chris Morley said NUJ members are now offering Johnson Press one last chance to meet the union's "reasonable requirements" for the future of Sheffield's editorial operations.

Earlier this month, managing director of Sheffield Newspapers John Bills told workers that job losses would be offset by redeployment, stating: "As a result of this proposal, there is no overall reduction to current headcount."
