IF YOU have the equipment can you please fax a polite protest to Doug
Melloy, editor of the Rotherham Advertiser, on 01709 515364 (from outside
the UK it is +44 1709 515364) asking for the re-instatement of NUJ rep Mark
Mark was one of the negotiators who helped secure rises of up to 12
percent in the wake of a summer's strike over low pay. But a couple of weeks
after the dispute ended Mark was selected for redundancy without anyone else
being considered for the chop.
In a secret ballot 100 percent of those taking part have voted for a
strike in support of Mark. The union's national executive emergency
committee has backed the dispute.
Thanks to everyone who has sent Mark a message of support. If you haven't
sent one so far please do - even a few words make a lot of difference. His
email is firstname.lastname@example.org
Please pass this on to every right-thinking person you know who has a fax
Thanks for your support...
