JP journalists vote for industrial action

The company wide ballet at Johnston Press has resulted in 70 per cent of NUJ staff voting in favour of industrial action.

The ballot was over what the NUJ claims is Johnston’s rushed introduction of the new Atex content management system which it claims is creating redundancies and harming the editorial quality of the company’s newspapers.

Seventy per cent of members voted in favour of action of some sort, although 88.1 per cent of these said it should be action short of a strike.

Turnout was 65.2 per cent.
