NUJ members at South Yorkshire Newspapers have voted overwhelmingly in favour of strike action after nine months of trying to secure a pay deal with management.
A majority 85.7 per cent of journalists at the Johnston Press-owned group are planning to strike on 12, 18 and 19 July unless they can strike a deal with their bosses.
The strike would be combined with a work to rule meaning a total ban on working evenings and weekends for a two-week period starting from 10 July.
The union is trying to push management higher that its 2.75 per cent across the board pay rise.
South Yorkshire Newspapers comprises the Doncaster Advertiser, Doncaster Courier Shopper
