Union action against Johnston Press Group's new editorial system

Journalists from five Irish Johnston Press Group newspapers intend to go on strike next Tuesday after hearing of possible staff cuts that will occur as a result of putting a new editorial production system in place that the publisher's management thinks will abolish the need for sub-editors, MediaGuardian reported.

"The experience of this union in the UK is that the new system and reduced staffing levels have led to chaos - the results have been disastrous publications."
