Stand up for journalism: South Yorkshire Newspapers sign now

Petition to: John Fry, Chief Executive, Johnston Press PLC (108 Holyrood Road, Edinburgh, EH8 8AS)

We, the undersigned, are deeply concerned about the futures of the Doncaster Free Press, South Yorkshire Times (Mexborough), Selby Times, Goole Courier and Epworth Bells given the recent announcements from South Yorkshire Newspapers over job cuts.
We call on you, as the head of Johnston Press which owns these titles, to personally intervene to find an acceptable resolution to the dispute between the company and the National Union of Journalists that has forced journalists to take indefinite strike action.
Failure to do so would damage the reputation of your company in the eyes of local communities.
