Red Bee Media members ballot for industrial action
11 March 2010
NUJ members at media management company, Red Bee Media, are voting on industrial action over attacks on their established redundancy terms agreement.
Alongside colleagues from broadcasting union, BECTU, the journalists are fighting efforts by Red Bee to halve redundancy pay for new staff to two weeks' pay per year of service. Red Bee Media provides broadcast output and support for BBC television, Channel 4 and UKTV.
The NUJ and BECTU are pressing for a resumption of negotiations on the issue as an alternative to industrial action.
