Journalists working on Newsquest titles in South London have called a 12-day strike over plans to axe up to 14 editorial roles.
Members of the National Union of Journalists working at the titles will walk out next Monday and the strike is not set to finish until 23.59 on Friday 26 June.
The strike dates have been set after union members voted unanimously last week to take action and will be followed by a work to rule from Monday 29 June.
Journalists in South London are being faced with redundancy or a pay cut as part of a cost-cutting drive which will see 16 weeklies placed under a single group managing editor, Andrew Parkes.
Under the plans, Newsquest plans to merge the South West London and South East London editorial departments and ask South East London reporters to work remotely.
Up to 14 roles are at risk and, although three new posts are being created and 11 vacancies are available, many senior roles are set to disappear and staff who stay on are likely to face the prospect of a pay cut.
A spokesman for the chapel said: “We have a very strong mandate for action from our members.
“We would prefer not to have to take strike action, but the management’s decision has given us no option.
“We care about our readers and the communities we serve. Further cuts to staff will have an effect on the quality of the newspapers we produce and will add to the already-low morale among poorly-paid staff.
“The union remains willing to seek a resolution to the dispute with management.”
Union members at Newsquest York also voted for strike action last week over further redundancies but have not announced any dates for action yet.
Newsquest had not responded to requests for a comment at the time of publication.
