Stourbridge Strike Off

Strike action at Newsquest’s Stourbridge office has been cancelled.

On July 1, ten journalists – who had planned to hold industrial action over plans to move three sub- editors to a production hub 27 miles away – decided not to strike.

The Worcester sub hub will eventually produce papers including the Stourbridge News, Halesowen News, Dudley News, Kidderminster Shuttle, Bromsgrove Advertiser and Redditch Advertiser.

NUJ Northern and Midlands organiser Chris Morley said a resolution had been reached for two members, although concerns remained over the impact of the hub.

State of Play: Why are all the strikes being cancelled?
