Good news, bad news

You just cannot win in the current economic climate. Maglight, the newsletter of the NUJ's London Magazine Branch, reports:"Emap's Public Sector NUJ chapel has won a pay rise of 3.5 per cent from October, with 2 per cent backdated pay from April. Members were united in achieving a fair deal following years of below inflation pay rises. An indicative ballot in October was unanimously in favour of strike action, and the final offer came on the very day the official ballot papers went out. But the following day, Emap said it would make 40 staff redundant, 20 of them from editorial."
