Workers at ITV struck for 24 hours on Thursday of last week in a fight for fair pay.
Bectu, NUJ and Unite union members walked out after overwhelmingly voting to reject a below-inflation pay deal of 2 percent.
Bosses at ITV have refused to budge, despite the fact that ITV posted profits of £712 million in 2014. And ITV boss Adam Crozier awarded himself a bonus of £8.4 million in 2013.
Meanwhile workers have had to put up with years of pay cuts and job losses.
Marie Liffen is a Bectu branch steward at ITV in London. She told Socialist Worker, “Over the last five years there have been pay cuts and redundancies.”
She added, “Then we had a year of no pay increase at all. They reneged on a two-year deal.”
Workers protested outside ITV’s shareholders’ AGM in central London on the same day.
