Journalists in Sheffield have suspended a strike following successful negotiations between their union and management.

Successful strike negotiations in Sheffield have led to a group of journalists putting off plans to stop working in protest at proposed job cuts.

Talks between the National Union of Journalists (NUJ) and management at Johnston Press's Sheffield Newspapers hub have resulted in the formation of a deal to guarantee jobs for all staff at the unit.

A total of 57 journalists were involved in the dispute over a plan to cut production jobs at Sheffield Newspapers - which produces pages for a number of titles published across Yorkshire and Derbyshire - by 50 per cent.

"The settlement meets the NUJ's demands and represents a significant victory for our members," said NUJ organiser Chris Morley, adding that not only jobs been guaranteed for all workers, but freelancers will also be offered the opportunity to take up permanent roles.

Established in 1907, the NUJ has 38,000 members and is one of the largest unions for journalists in the world.
