Reuters set for strike over pay

Issue No. 2289

Members of the NUJ journalists union at the Thompson Reuters news agency were set to walk out for 48 hours from Thursday over a below-inflation pay offer.

The workers voted by 83 percent for strikes against a derisory 1.75 percent pay offer. It is set to be the first time journalists at the agency have struck in 25 years.
