Journalists at the Glasgow-based Daily Record and Sunday Mail are preparing for a substantial escalation in industrial action, following last week’s second 24 hour stoppage in the campaign against compulsory redundancies, the NUJ said today.
Hundreds of workers from both papers, part of Trinity Mirror, were joined by three Glasgow Members of the Scottish Parliament for a rally outside the papers’ headquarters last Friday. They included former Daily Record industrial correspondent David Whitton.
He told chapel members and other supporters: “Even Robert Maxwell didn’t try to make reporters at the Daily Record compulsorily redundant."
More strike days are now scheduled for 17 and 18 April.
