Here is a cut from the letter.
“If outsourcing goes ahead we believe that GNM management will have made a strategic mistake it will come to regret, one which its staff in their majority reject and which we believe you, it’s readers, would also question. We urge management to reconsider and sit down with Unite and the NUJ to discuss alternative ways of dealing with GNM’s current financial difficulties.”
