Newquest pay quest
Many journalists working for Newsquest titles have received only one pay increase of two per cent in the past four years. By comparison, inflation has risen by an average of three per cent each year. Newsquest journalists in York lost a day's pay for attending a 10-minute union meeting in November.

As ever, the chapels would appreciate it if freelances engaged to work on any strike days found themselves unavailable. Anyone suffering hardship as a result of being unavailable should contact the chapel.
