Yorkshire Post Newspapers pickets out in force again
20 February 2009
Journalists in Leeds picketed the offices of Yorkshire Post Newspapers on yesterday and today in support of their strike over job cuts and quality journalism. More than 140 NUJ members have been taking part in the action.
The NUJ members will continue the picket over the weekend. The journalists – from the Yorkshire Post, Yorkshire Evening Post and Leeds Weekly News – plan another four-day strike from next Thursday.
Keep up to date with the strikers' blog. Spirits were high on the first day of the strike.
The atmosphere is captured in the striker's video, which features a song called Evening Post, specially written for the strike by The Shakinouts, a young band from Leeds.
