NUJ organiser Jenny Lennox, who represented PA staff photographers during the recent redundancies, will also be speaking at the meeting along with LPB Vice Chair and freelance photographer Andrew Wiard.
The meeting will open with a slide show from the 1986 Wapping dispute. Twenty-five years ago Rupert Murdoch moved his newspaper group overnight l,eading to the sacking of over 5,500 workers. If you covered Wapping and would like to add them to the slideshow please email them over to Larry Herman by the end of the week.
