Shropshire Star staff in strike ballot over job cuts

Union members at the Shropshire Star newspaper are to be balloted over strike action.

Union members met on Wednesday over plans for compulsory redundancies at the newspaper, which is owned by The Midland News Association (MNA).

Earlier this week it was announced a total of 90 jobs are to go at the Express & Star, which is also owned by the MNA, and the Shropshire Star.

The job losses will be split between the two papers.
