This week’s planned strike at the Morning Star newspaper was been suspended after progress in negotiations.
NUJ members had told the paper’s management of their intention to hold a 24 hour strike on Monday in protest against low pay at the title. However, following discussions on 18 February, the action was suspended to allow negotiations to continue.
NUJ Deputy General Secretary Michelle Stanistreet said: “I’m pleased to report that we’ve had constructive negotiations with management and as a sign of good faith the chapel has called off the industrial action planned for Monday. Our members don’t want to go on strike – they just want management to address their concerns about low pay.”
