Tahiti newspaper strike ends

10:32 am on 2 December 2017

A week-long strike at French Polynesia's La Depeche de Tahiti newspaper has been settled.

Reports say management has agreed to abandon plans to move the printing of the paper to another company, Pacific Press.

The unions feared job losses as a result of the planned restructure.

Last week, Pacific Press said it had no intention of hiring staff from La Depeche.

It said it had made business offers related to printing publications but they excluded hiring staff.

Three years ago, Les Nouvelles de Tahiti ceased publication after being placed in voluntary liquidation.
