JP Staffing Levels – A Growing Issue

Leave a comment

Chapel reps are demanding answers from senior Johnston Press management over their increased workloads. A potential dispute has blown up as staffing numbers have fallen below levels, which were agreed last year as part of the Newsroom of the Future changes.

Discussions will probably take place next Monday, although the weekly newspaper F/MoCs are seriously considering industrial action in light of growing stress levels linked to the diminishing number of journalists.

Management are keen to talk but the reps say they are looking for more than words and are angry at the negative response coming back from the HR team.
