STV journalists strike

  • 27 Mar 2024

NUJ members at STV are taking strike action in their dispute over pay. Find out how how can show your solidarity.

The NUJ is seeking a 6 per cent rise for members to keep pace with inflation after a record cost-of-living crisis last year. The company has offered this increase for the bottom 3 per cent of earners, saying it cannot afford to pay more for the remaining staff despite making over £20m in profit on record revenues last year.

Day one of the strike on  28 March at various sites across Scotland was a huge success. Day two was due to take place on Tuesday 16 April but, following negotiations on 15 April, has been postponed pending further talks.

The chapel also voted for a third day on Wednesday 1 May to coincide with the STV sharelholders' AGM.
