Local newspaper publisher Sir Ray Tindle has announced a £500 across the board pay rise for all full-time members of staff.
The Tindle Group, which publishes more than 200 local titles, announced the salary increase with effect from today.
A similar pay award was made to the group’s 700 employees last year.
The group said in a statement issued today: “At a meeting this week of the entire management of the Tindle Newspaper Group it was agreed that an all-round increase in salaries of £500 would be given to full time members of staff with at least twelve months service with TNL (and pro-rata for part-timers) with effect from October 1
