Introduction of the Atex System in Ireland proposing job losses to the Johnston Press staff

The Johnston Press staff have decided to go on strike against using a new editorial system called Atex. This new technology system would most likely end in job losses for the Jonhston Press staff.

According to a release by the National Union of Journalists, the Atex system would result in not needing sub editors. However, it would leave more work for the Journalists left behind.

NUJ Northern Regional Organiser Chris Morley talks about this whole issue in this video:
