NUJ members at Express Newspapers in London and Broughton have voted to accept a deal that lifts the imminent threat of further strike action at the Express and Star.

The deal will lead to long hoped for talks on productivity. The Journalists, who work for the Express and Star newspapers, have opposed moves by the company to outsource work over the past few years. Management has now agreed to discuss bringing work back in-house.

Journalists at the papers believe they stand to gain considerably from a potential agreement on outsourced work. Feisty meetings at both sites agreed to accept a pay rise of three per cent, which will be backdated to 1 January, to enable negotiators to enter into the talks.

It is expected that productivity savings will result in an improved deal for journalists at the company’s titles and have the potential to substantially improve job security.
