Journalists at a regional daily and its Sunday sister title have voted in favour of strike action over a pay dispute.
A total of 19 members out of 22 voted in favour of strike action, while a vote in favour of action short of strike was unanimous.
The NUJ says it now hopes to meet INM to discuss issues including pay claim, minimum rates of pay and acting up allowances.
A statement published by the NUJ reads: “NUJ members have voted in favour of industrial action and action short of a strike.
“Following the result, the union is still willing to engage with the company to find a solution.
“The outstanding issues are the pay claim, minimum rates of pay, and acting up allowances.”
INM has declined to comment.
