South Yorkshire Newspapers manager's profile needs translation
18 August 2011
NUJ strikers at South Yorkshire Newspapers have a challenge for NUJ members. They have tracked down the South Yorkshire Newspaper's new Managing Director's Linkedin page – but frankly don't know what it means.
"Process improvement and cost reduction" presumably means sacking journalists. When he says he is adept at building and motivating high performance teams", he's certainly motivated NUJ members to strike!
Anyway, there's a prize for the best translation of John Bills' management into English, so let's see you hacks get cracking!
First prize is a copy of this week's strike-breaker produced Doncaster Free Press.
Second prize is, of course, two copies!
