NUJ Strike at Enfield

Wed 27 Apr 2011 in Tindle Group News

Below is an extract from the front page of the Enfield Advertiser today:

“Nine journalists of this newspaper who are members of the National Union of Journalists remain on strike for a second week so this is the second edition produced by the remainder of the staff and management.

The dispute is about the paper‘s non-replacement of staff leaving by natural wastage in this recession and is despite the company making huge and unsustainable losses.

The group is the only one so far not to make journalists redundant in the downturn. That meant non-replacement of those who left for other jobs.

We hope this edition is both local and acceptable to you, our readers.”
