Strike fund tops £1,000

The support we've had from fellow journalists and trade unionists since announcing our strike has been overwhelming. In the last half-hour £350 has been donated to our strike fund by the Birmingham and Coventry NUJ Branch, and and another £500 has been pledged from the Yorkshire Evening Post/Yorkshire Post joint NUJ chapel. Our strike fund has now hit the £1,000 mark. An enormous thank you to everyone who has so far pledged their support.
