Strike negotiations 'needed' by Newsquest

Newsquest has been urged to enter strike negotiations.

06 January 2011

Strike negotiations might prove useful for an ongoing dispute between journalists and their employer Newsquest.

Members of the National Union of Journalists (NUJ) at Brighton and Darlington were on strike today (January 6th), despite pay offers of two per cent made to staff at some centres.

They have joined those who began a three-day stoppage at the Southern Daily Echo in Southampton yesterday, with journalists deciding to extend their industrial action for an extra day following a row over bonus payments paid to non-strikers last month.

NUJ deputy general secretary Michelle Stanistreet told Hold The Front Page: "Our members in the group want their union to be able to sit down with management to discuss a range of issues, including pay and redundancies."

She added now is the time for Newsquest to take action and begin talks with the NUJ.

Strike negotiations might also prove useful for teachers who have began three days of strikes at Rawmarsh Community School in Rotherham.
