Trinity Mirror's managing director challenges NUJ's strike plans

Trinity Mirror's managing director challenges NUJ's strike plans

Georgina Harvey, the managing director of the UK's Trinity Mirror has criticised the National Union of Journalist's plans to hold a one-day strike, calling it a "reckless and negligent decision," Press Gazette reported.

The NUJ's strike plans concern several regional editions of the paper in the Midlands region. The strike will protest the paper's announced closure of nine titles and the cutting of 120 positions.

Harvey suggested the decision to strike was not made by the majority of unionised journalists, saying that "it is highly frustrating that the majority of our journalists should be held to ransom like this when only 27 percent of our entire editorial workforce across the Midlands businesses voted for this action."
