United Kingdom -Strike at television broadcaster ITV -May 15, 2015

Workers have rejected the company’s 2% wage offer, as it falls behind the increased costs of living.

Workers at public television broadcaster ITV have staged a 24 hour strike. The workers have rejected the company’s 2% wage offer, which they have said is out of line with the 39% after-taxes profit that ITV made in 2014. Trade unionists furthermore said the wage offer falls behind the increased costs of living and is unacceptably meagre in the face of large bonuses being paid out to management.
