Trinity Brum journalists in new action vote
This is the third time NUJ members at the papers will have voted on whether to take strike action since the autumn of 2008. Previous ballots have focused on the company’s plans to make compulsory redundancies.
NUJ northern regional organiser Chris Morley, a former Birmingham Mail industrial correspondent, said: “Once again Trinity Mirror management are forcing our members to resort to an industrial action ballot to make the company listen to their concerns. But this time it isn’t just about defending members at risk of compulsory redundancy but also about being asked to stand up against rising and unreasonable workloads and levels of stress caused by management cuts."
Ballot forms went out on Wednesday.
