Johnston Press in East Lancashire and the NUJ have resolved their dispute after the company agreed not to press on with compulsory redundancies, the union said today.
The new plan will see two editorial managers leave voluntarily. Their responsibilities will be taken on by weekly paper editors and there will be some extra days of reporting.
The NUJ says union members at the Burnley Express, Clitheroe Advertiser and Nelson Leader have agreed to accept the porposals. Yesterday the union reported that NUJ members on the papers had voted in favour of industrial action over job cuts.
