Watch for action at Reach plc

FREELANCES should watch out for news of strikes or other industrial action at newspapers owned by Reach plc, over a miserly three per pay offer. Members there were being balloted as we were in press.

The Freelance notes that freelances cannot, in law strike: but we would not be surprised if any freelance called upon to work for Reach on relevant dates found themselves to be unavailable.

Please check back here after 12 August for news of action later in the month.
