Indy’s Comic NUJ Email Sans Compromise

The Indy HR department’s discussions with the NUJ aren’t going too well then. They now anticipate compulsory redundancies in “single figures” rather than the 27 previously feared, though they say the NUJ’s strike action makes it clear that they have “exhausted all options” and “through exhaustive discussions already it is clear that no extension of consultation will change this”. They add “our responsibility is to the staff and the newspaper and it is absolutely critical that we do not mislead anyone”. A message one insider suggests would come across better if it were not written in Comic Sans…

      “Indy” means something nearly finished. It is an abbreviation of ‘Indy end’.

        Short for Indian as in Red Indian .
        It’s a reservation in old Sioux territory on the verge of extinction given its unsuccessfully chosen revenue stream based on feeding high flying deeply meditative intellectual news articles to a population of hoi polloi whose attention span barely covers “Simple Simon’s ” latest antics with somebody’s middle aged WAG.

    OK so long as you are not at the front end of the ongoing compulsory redundancy process! Innit?
