ITV workers to stage 24-hour strike


ITV production workers and other staff are to stage a 24-hour strike in a dispute over pay.

The technicians' union Bectu said its members had voted in favour of industrial action by 67pc in protest at a 2pc pay award.

Unions have been pressing for a bigger wage increase in view of the TV company's profits.

Bectu general secretary Gerry Morrissey told reporters that staff were "very unhappy" with the pay offer.

"There is a huge disparity between the pay offered to staff and the bonus package to executives as well as shareholder dividends.
