Guardian pay freeze gets icy NUJ response

The NUJ is asking for more financial information and meetings with the Guardian Media Group over the proposed group-wide pay freeze.
NUJ general secretary Jeremy Dear says on his blog , referring to a meeting with Guardian management on Friday: "The afternoon was dominated by a meeting with Guardian editor Alan Rusbridger and senior finance and editorial managers - during which they announced their plans for a pay freeze for all staff - we've not accepted the need for the freeze, instead asking them key questions about the company's finances. Further information-gathering meetings will take place before pay negotiations next month."
