NUJ Darlington on tour!

NUJ Darlington members protesting over job cuts and low pay took to the road today to make their case to the public.

As well as staging a picket outside the offices of The Northern Echo and Darlington & Stockton Times in Priestgate, Darlington, staff went here, there and everywhere - despite the snow and ice.

After a morning demonstration in Darlington, members took to the road and staged demonstrations in Bishop Auckland and Durham City. One member even travelled all the way to Surrey to join fellow NUJ members from Newsquest offices in Brighton and Southampton to make their case at the company's headquarters in Surrey.

Pictures show the protest at Weybridge, involving Newsquest staff from Brighton, Southampton, and a representative from Darlington. More pictures will follow from the protests around Darlington and County Durham.

  1. Stephen - it was great to meet you as a colleague and a representative of the Darlington chapel, who we're proud to stand with. Thanks for making that long journey - - it made a big difference to the protest.

    The Grim Reaper comes to us all, but currently seeks the shortest and greediest member of the Newsquest management team for a game of chess.

    Reaping burns a lot of calories.
