Unite Secures Recognition Deal at The Guardian Print Centre

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Sept. 28, 2007) - Re-organisation of newspaper industry continues with Unite, the UK's biggest union representing print and graphical workers in the newspaper and media industry, securing union recognition at the Guardian's new Print Centre in London.

The recognition agreement been signed by Unite Regional Officer Paul Frizzell, with the Guardian Print Centre and covers all the workers including over 100 Unite members in pre-press, press hall, post press, engineering, maintenance and warehouse.

Unite National Officer, Steve Sibbald, said:

"Hopefully we will enjoy a fruitful, productive relationship with the Guardian Print Centre who have co-operated with Unite throughout. This agreement is part of the continuing success story of the re-organisation of the Newspaper Industry where 20 years ago, apart from a few newspapers, the whole industry was virtually de-recognised.

"We have other recognition agreements in the pipeline in regional newspapers and we will continue until all of the newspaper industry is re-organised once again."
