Newsquest journalists begin pay ballot

Issue No. 2319

Journalists working for Newsquest in Yorkshire have begun a ballot over pay. They were offered just 2 percent by their employers, amounting to a pay cut after inflation.

The journalists are members of the NUJ union. The ballot closes on 11 September.

Some 35 job cuts have been announced at BBC Scotland. This comes as pressure builds to implement the £16 million cuts announced last year.

The NUJ has said that if compulsory redundancy is forced on workers then it will ballot for industrial action.
