Trinity Mirror is to impose a pay freeze for all staff in 2012.
The newspaper publisher’s latest financial figures, published in November, showed advertising revenue on its national titles was down 10% year-on-year, and down 7% for regional titles.
Commenting on the pay freeze, a Trinity Mirror spokesperson said: “2011 has been a challenging year for the business and the outlook for 2012 shows no signs of improving.
“The decision not to hold a pay review in Trinity Mirror during 2012 applies to everyone – the board, all management and employees of the group.”
