Derry vote means more strife for Johnston

NUJ members at the Johnston Press-owned Derry Journal have voted 100 percent in favour of taking industrial action over job cuts and the introduction of centralised subbing at the paper, the union said today.
Talks are planned next Tuesday at the Labour Relations Agency - Northern Ireland’s conciliation service.
Johnston Press, which is looking for a buyer for its Irish newspapers, is already facing strike action at Yorkshire Post Newspapers in Leeds.
Derry Journal NUJ chapel has said previously of the proposed job cuts: "The Derry Journal survived the Famine, but we fear it may not survive Johnston Press."
