EMAP - pay up!

On Friday 6 September the EMAP chapel voted unanimously to send their case to the Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service ACAS. The planned second week on strike is suspended. They await a response from management. Magazines sector organiser Mike Sherrington says that "Freelances were tremendously supportive in not filing copy and not doing shifts - the chapel is more than happy."

Meanwhile in Rotherham, talks opened on 6 September following a week's strike at the Advertiser and are described as "constructive".
