Daily Mirror, Daily Express and local newspapers face strike over pay offer rejection
Reach, which also owns titles such as the Manchester Evening News and Liverpool Echo, has offered 3 percent production of the Daily Mirror, Daily Express and hundreds of local newspapers could be disrupted by strike action after their parent company, Reach, said it could offer staff only a 3 percent pay rise. The National Union of Journalists has rejected the offer. It said its members were already having to shoulder the burden of extra domestic energy costs after Reach closed the vast majority of its offices during the pandemic. Many reporters now work permanently from home.
