Telegraph Staff to Strike

Staff at the Daily Telegraph and Sunday Telegraph have voted to go on strike, reports the BBC.

In what may be the first stoppage at a national newspaper for ten years a whopping 76% of staff opted for industrial action after the newspapers move to Victoria saw 130 workers being made redundant.

NUJ General Secretary Jeremy Dear said “Members at the Telegraph have had no choice but to take the ultimate step and vote to strike”.

“Management have only themselves to blame. They should have seen this coming months ago and done something to reassure staff rather than high-handedly pushing on with painful and unpopular changes.”

Management at the Telegraph have yet to recieve official notice of the decision and said they were unable to comment.
