NUJ postpones planned strike action  

  • 09 Sep 2022

Three-day strike action at Reach Plc and current work to rule at the company will no longer take place.

The National Union of Journalists has postponed next week’s three-day strike action at Reach Plc and the current work to rule at the company.  The strike was due to begin on Wednesday, coinciding with the TUC Congress in Brighton.  

On 9 September, the Reach group chapel decided to postpone the strike action and to use the intervening period to consult members on proposals put forward by the company. The Executive Council of the TUC today decided to postpone Congress following the death of Queen Elizabeth II. 

The union will now undertake an online consultative ballot of members to gain views on whether journalists wish to accept the proposed deal. The ballot will open on 14 September and close at noon on 23 September.
