NUJ postpones Reach action following new offer and Queen’s death


The National Union of Journalists has postponed this week’s three-day strike action at Reach Plc and the current work to rule at the company following a new offer from Reach, and the death of Queen Elizabeth II.

The strike was due to begin on Wednesday, coinciding with the TUC Congress in Brighton, however the Reach Group Chapel now says it will postpone the action and “use the intervening period to consult members on proposals put forward by the company.”

The union will now undertake an online consultative ballot of members to gain views on whether journalists wish to accept the proposed deal. The ballot will open on September 14 and close at noon on September 23.
