Newsquest facing more strike votes by journalists

As NUJ members return to work at Newsquest's Southern Daily Echo in Southampton and The Argus, Brighton, after holding 48 hour strikes, the company is facing industrial action elsewhere in the group over its pay freeze.

According to NUJ assistant organiser Lawrence Shaw on Twitter: "Newsquest NUJ chapels vote for strike action over pay and cuts - Bolton (74%), Blackburn (100%) and Bradford (90%) on solid turnouts."

Members in Darlington voted for action last week. Ballots are also underway in York, Andover, and Oxford.
