The National Union of Journalists (NUJ) has said "all options are open", including strike action, after Reach plc, the parent company of Mirror and

Express papers, brutally slashed 450 jobs last week.

In a statement released on Tuesday, the NUJ said there is a "high degree of anger among members for the actions being undertaken by company chiefs and NUJ chapels therefore reserve the right to ballot for industrial action. All options are open." Last week, Reach said it is axing around 450 full-time jobs, 320 of them editorial roles, as part of a cost-cutting drive. The union said it is "the single worst" mass culling in the UK publication sector for decades.
