Yorkshire dispute settled

Following a visit by National Union of Journalists outgoing General Secretary John Foster, the dispute at Newsquest titles in West Yorkshire was settled.

Meanwhile, NUJ members on Newsquest's Bolton-based titles, part of the same division as Bradford, have also rejected a 2.5 percent pay offer. The chapel awaits developments.
