Sun sub-editors have walked out

Post by GD on Thu 07 Jul 2011, 9:11 pm

In solidarity with colleagues at the News of the World, tonight Sub-Editors at The Sun newspaper have walked out of work in protest.

At the same time as the protest, inside the building, News of the World staff were being told about the redundancies.

The company has told staff they will receive a 90 day payment which covers the legally required consultation period for job cuts.

This exposes the cynical deceit of James Murdoch who earlier
today said: “We will communicate next steps in detail and begin appropriate consultation.”

NUJ general secretary Michelle Stanistreet said: “This outrageous manipulation of the legal right to be consulted about redundancies shows the contempt that the Murdoch empire has for its loyal staff. True to form, he believes he can buy his way out of his obligations. This is an act of damage limitation to salvage Murdoch’s reputation and that of News International – both of which are now tarnished beyond repair.” (from the journalists union website)
