Newsquest London journalists to work to rule

Journalists from Newsquest are to strike.

Journalists working for Newsquest in London are to start industrial action next Friday in a dispute with local management over redundancies, pay and quality news content.

A total of 27 journalists at Sutton, Surrey and in Twickenham will work to rule from next week.

However, members of the National Union of Journalists are offering to work an extra hour per day to secure the quality of their papers, provided Newsquest restores the amount of editorial space it publishes in a number of its London titles.

A number of Newsquest weekly papers in South and West London have undergone pagination cuts in recent weeks with key editorial pages in some titles reduced by half.
