NUJ begins recognition talks with Vice
31 March 2016
The NUJ is arranging to meet the management of the media company Vice next week, following a letter from the company agreeing to negotiations.
Laura Davison, NUJ national organiser, said:
“We're pleased by Vice's positive response to our application for recognition. We look forward to our joint negotiations to agree the framework for constructive industrial relations, for the benefit of the workforce and the company.”
When the union submitted the request under Schedule A1 of the Trade Union and Labour Relations (Consolidation) Act 1992, a Vice NUJ committee spokesperson said:
"We’re excited and looking forward to working with the company. Vice should be leading the industry by setting high standards for employment as well as journalistic integrity. While digital media is a rapidly growing and changing industry, it’s important for employers in the sector to respect workers’ rights. We enjoy working at Vice and we just want a voice in making improvements for staff."
