Hi there folks,
As an ex-Tindle employee who crossed the “stone” in the composing room to be sports ed. and news sub at Newton Abbot in Devon, you have my support and sympathy…
It is not only your staff who are suffering, but the whole of the Tindle empire, his aim is to make money and you are of no consequence in that aim.
In other offices I know that they have received no wage rises for two years and that those in editorial control have been told to lean more on advertising than news… as if he and the rest of them did not have enough in their coffers already.
Keep your chins up… keep putting out the message… and the best of luck to you all.
