Journalists at three local newspapers in Lancashire have voted to strike in a fight over job cuts.
In a ballot, 90% of editorial staff at the Burnley Express, Clitheroe Advertiser and Nelson Leader voted in favour of industrial action.
The National Union of Journalists (NUJ) said the decision came after an announcement of dozens of redundancies and reorganisation by Johnston Press.
The company has refused to comment on the strike action.
Management at the newspaper group want to restructure the newspapers and its websites across the north west.
'Show of strength'
Chris Morley, NUJ northern organiser, said: "This is a very solid result.
"The chapel will not accept anything less than a proper negotiated agreement on the future of their titles and no compulsory redundancies."
It comes a month after Guardian Media Group (GMG) announced it was closing all of its district newspaper offices across Greater Manchester and Lancashire in favour of a central office in Manchester and cutting 150 jobs.
Jeremy Dear, NUJ general secretary, said: "This is a magnificent show of strength by a chapel that only won union recognition a few months ago.
"The NUJ is right behind them in their fight to save jobs and keep these papers and websites close to their local communities."
