Save Our Star

Petition published by Save Our Star on Aug 20, 2008
517 Signatures 
Target: Johnston Press

Petition Background (Preamble):

We the undersigned recognise the vital role of The Star in serving the South Yorkshire community and promoting local democracy. Since 1887 The Star has been reporting on events of local and national importance including the Miners Strike, The Hillsborough Disaster and the Floods of 2007.

We are concerned to hear of the proposed job cuts and feel they threaten the ability of the remaining staff to continue to perform this important job. We also protest at the closure of district offices in Barnsley and Rotherham and fear for the future of Doncaster office, which is "under review".

To this end we pledge our support to the Save Our Star campaign and urge Johnston Press management to reconsider their position on redundancies and any future editorial cuts at the newspaper.
