Newsquest news

Journalists working for the Newsquest's group's local papers in Brighton, Southampton and Darlington held strikes in January as part of their ongoing dispute over wage freezes, redundancies, and - in the case of the Brighton Argus - plans to move the subbing operation to Southampton.

With many freelances who work for these newspapers suffering financial hardship as a result of the strike, London Freelance Branch has voted to donate £150 to each of the hardship funds of the NUJ Chapels (work-place-based units of organisation) at these three titles.
