Cairo: BBC journalists on strike today

  • 14 Jun 2023

NUJ sends a message of solidarity to BBC journalists in Cairo taking action over the broadcaster’s unfair payment policy.

The National Union of Journalists supports journalists at the BBC Cairo bureau in their one-day strike action today, 14 June. Members are taking industrial action over the BBC’s failure to undertake a review and make changes to its payment policy, following significant devaluation of  the local currency.

Journalists on strike state BBC Cairo is not cheap labour, and that the current policy systematically discriminates against staff in the bureau. Members are seeking a fair policy that resolves the dispute and means journalists are paid fairly.

The NUJ World Service branch has sent a message of solidarity and NUJ members can do so on social media using #IamCairo and the image below.
