London Photographers’ Branch members joined General Secretary Jeremy Dear, General Secretary ElectMichelle Stanistreet and staff at North London & Herts Newspapers on the picket line this morning, on the first day of a planned two-week strike over job cuts.

The strikers have organised a demonstration tomorrow, Wednesday 20 April, at noon. More details here.
