GUARDIAN media writer Roy Greenslade gives a blow by blow account of strike action by Darlington staff and NUJ members at other centres in Southampton and Brighten (oops, let’s stick to the pre-Newsquest version and call it Brighton).
Greenslade also mentions the visit by former Newsquest editor Peter Greenwood to the Darlington picket line on Friday. Mr Greenwood was editor of the Craven Herald and Pioneer before taking early retirement last June. Hold the Front Page also has a piece on Mr Greenwood’s visit and his support for strikers.
Socialist Worker is running a piece this morning about the strikes at Darlington, Southampton and Brighton under the headline Newsquest: stop press – we’re on strike.
