Johnson Press drops Midlands subs' hub

Johnston Press has dropped plans for a new subbing hub in the Midlands after opposition from staff, HoldtheFrontPage reports today.
The company began consulting last month with sub-editing staff at its weekly titles in Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire about the possibility of creating the hub in Chesterfield.
One Johnston employee told HTFP: "The whole process seemed to be going on for ages and we were expecting to be told who would be moving into the hub. But then out of the blue we were informed that it was all off and everyone would be staying where they were for the time being because of the negative feedback they'd had from staff."
