Trinity strikes called off

Last week we reported that journalists at Trinity Mirror intended to go on strike, protesting heavy cuts at the struggling publisher. Today it transpired that Mirror journalists decided against the industrial action.

The decision may only be a postponement of the planned action, as staff claimed they wanted to know the outcome of the selection process that will determine who will lose their jobs.

The lack of staff who are members of the British Association of Journalists working on a Friday would have probably played on the minds of those staff seeking a dramatic walkout.

Strikes at sister newspapers The People and the Sunday Mirror were also called off on the Saturday.

Charlie Beckett, director of POLIS at the London School of Economics, reacts to news that the UK government forced the Guardian into destroying hard drives that contained information leaked by Edward Snowden.
