Thomson Reuters: NUJ rejects 'insulting' pay offer

Journalists at Thomson Reuters are to ballot for industrial after rejecting a below-inflation pay offer of 1.5 per cent.

The news agency’s NUJ chapel has passed a resolution stating: "This chapel rejects the below-inflation offer of 1.5 per cent across the board as insulting after three years of real-term pay cuts. This chapel insists on a return to the previous practice of annual across-the-board pay rises at least in line with inflation.

"It demands 7 per cent across the board and in light of our continuing pay dispute, and the company's failure to come close to our demand, the chapel will proceed with its ballot for industrial action."
