Associated Newspapers Plc

EDM number 38 in 1989-90, proposed by Alan Meale on 21/11/1989.

That this House condemns the actions of Associated Newspapers plc, to tear up properly negotiated house agreements with their journalists working on the Daily Mail, Mail on Sunday and Evening Standard newspapers; and further deplores this company's decision to deny these workers the right to be officially represented in negotiations on salaries, discipline, redundancies and pensions by their trade union, the National Union of Journalists, a move which is provocative, hostile and above all unnecessary, as recognition and the existence of these agreements have maintained harmonious industrial relations for many years and produced a journalistic workforce which has contributed significantly to the prosperity of all three newspapers.

This motion has been signed by a total of 37 MPs.
