Support Greater Manchester strikers

Strikes a great success

On Tuesday and Wednesday journalists fighting for a living wage picketed every office of Greater Manchester Weekly Newspapers northern division - part of the Guardian Media Group.

Three reporters in one office joined the union on the picket line and refused to go to work. In all 27 journalists were on strike - compared to 16 who voted for action in the industrial action ballot.

On Tuesday NUJ general secretary Jeremy Dear and Guardian NUJ rep Helen Oldfield addressed the strikers and their supporters outside the Rochdale Observer building.


...To everyone who supported the picket line and has sent money and messages.

On 17 April members of the union distributed nearly 500 leaflets about the dispute at the Guardian offices in Farringdon Road. Contact LFB Branch Secretary Molly Cooper for information on further leafletting.
