Action in York, talks in Leeds

NUJ members at Newsquest in York, which published the daily Press and related weeklies were taking industrial action today over management plans to axe four journalists jobs.
The cuts are on top of redundancies made last year by the company.
The union says journalists from the company have been in a meeting to discuss the situation since noon - and plan to stay there until the end of working hours today.
Meanwhile NUJ reps were due to meet management at Johnston Press in Leeds to discuss proposals aimed at ending the dispute at Yorkshire Post Newspapers, where journalists were on strike for four days until Monday over compulsory job cuts. Another four day strike is planned if no agreement is reached.

After today, I understand they're ready to name more days of action.
