The NUJ has achieved official union recognition at the Hackney Gazette.
move comes after management at the Archant-owned weekly in London
agreed to a membership count which revealed just over half of the
paper’s 22 editorial staff were in the NUJ. After a dispute between the
management and the NUJ about numbers, official recognition has now been
imposed by the Conciliation and Arbitration Committee.
