An extra word of support

A message from a former Echo staff member that came in ahead of our first day of action:

Dear all
Just wanted to let you know that I fully support your 
decision to take part in industrial action tomorrow. 
Journalists and other Echo workers have been subject to 
an erosion in their pay and conditions over many, many 
years. When I worked at Priestgate (1996 - 1999) the very 
fabric of the building had been neglected to such an 
extent that the health and safety of employees was at risk. 
It is this lack of respect for workers at the Echo - 
who are largely professional and loyal in their service - 
that completely justifies your action tomorrow. Be proud! 
Jill Boulton
Former Echo sub and NUJ member
