Johnston Press tells staff that all pay reviews on hold until early next year
Staff of Johnston Press have been told they will have to wait six months longer than they expected for a pay review – with the end result that pay levels will not be reviewed until next year.
The company informed staff in an email that it would be offering them an extra day of holiday in recognition of the "commitment and hard work" that has gone into relaunching local titles.
The email stated: "A decision has been taken to defer 2012 salary reviews by six months. This means that July reviews will be deferred to January and so on through the next 12 months which will effectively return review dates to their original position before the change in 2009.
