NUJ Strikers Publish Bootleg Papers

By: Roy Greenslade | Guardian.co.uk

National Union of Journalists’ strikers in Yorkshire are today producing their own unofficial issues of the Doncaster Free Press, South Yorkshire Times and Selby Times.

The union is engaged on an indefinite strike against the publishers, Johnston Press, over job cuts and the closure of offices.

Strikers say they have produced “bootleg” papers because they don’t want their readers to miss out on “the real news” during the strike.
