Negotiation called for on Herald/Sunday World redundancies
27 August 2014
A meeting of Dublin (National Newspapers) branch was held to discuss developments at Independent Newspapers (Ireland) and Sunday World.
The meeting was chaired by cathaoirleach Martin Fitzpatrick and heard a report from NUJ representatives at both titles.
The following motion was passed:
"The Dublin branch of the NUJ expresses grave concern at the deliberate and sustained attacks on the terms and conditions of employees of Independent News & Media. The decision to enforce wholesale changes in working conditions and the imposition of a joint industrial structure represents an attack on the editorial integrity of the Herald and Sunday World.
"The branch fully supports Independent Newspapers Chapel and the Sunday World Chapel in their opposition to the proposals and calls on management to enter into negotiation with the NUJ before further implementation of the plan."
