Trinity brace for strikes

Staff working at Trinity Mirror’s three national newspapers will carry out a series of strikes in protest of heavy cuts.

The first of three two-hour strikes will take place this Friday (20th), after a ballot of staff belonging to the British Association of Journalists voted for the action.

Trinity Mirror is reportedly set to dock the pay of staff who partake in strike action at the three papers, the Daily Mirror, Sunday Mirror and The People.

Mirror staff expressed their disbelief when head of news Anthony Harwood was made to leave his position, as many other staff accepted voluntary redundancy packages.
