More strikes at Newsquest Southampton and Brighton

Journalists go on strike for third time over in protest over job losses and a payment freeze

Journalists working for Newsquest in Brighton and Southampton will this week go out on strike for a third time in protest at job losses and an ongoing pay dispute.

Members of the National Union of Journalists on Southampton's Southern Daily Echo will start three consecutive days of strike action tomorrow over an ongoing pay freeze and non-payment of agreed minimums since July 2008.

At a chapel meeting before Christmas, union members voted to join two days of coordinated action taking place at Newsquest papers across the country this week while also striking for an additional day as a bonus for managers at the paper".
