Johnston Press Lancs weeklies hold strike ballot


Journalists working for Johnston Press in Lancashire are the latest to hold a strike ballot.

The vote follows news that Johnston wants to restructure operations on the Burnley Express, Nelson Leader, and Clitheroe Advertiser and that it has asked for voluntary redundancies, the NUJ reports.

Journalists on Johnston Press’ Leeds-based titles, including the Yorkshire Press and Yorkshire Evening Post, have so far held 13 days of strike action in protest at cutbacks.
