Milton Keynes journalists announce extended strike

Journalists at the Milton Keynes Citizen are to strike for a further six days following a three-day strike which ends tomorrow.

They are due to join the picket line from Monday to Wednesday next week and again on the following week.

The union is on strike in protest against a three per cent pay offer and a 10 per cent rise for new trainees joining the paper.

Under the proposals set out by management, salary in the second and third year of the deal would be linked to the retail price index unless this exceeds 3.5 per cent.
