Drawing a 70% strike vote
The (re-)launch, tonight, in Glasgow’s Beer Cafe also features the NUJ’s campaign for the BBC. A recent vote for strike action drew an over 70% Yes vote, and , although an immediate redundancy threat to Asian Network journalists has been resolved, there are still areas of the BBC (including BBC Scotland) where compulsory redundancies remain a real threat. More details on the dispute are here.
The event is open to NUJ members, friends and other trade unionists and is taking place from 6.30-8.00pm in the Beer Cafe in Glasgow’s Merchant Square (because, whisper it, Frank is based in Glasgow while drawing for the News over in Auld Reekie). Food and refreshments will be provided. Frank’s book will be available to buy there or can be ordered from http://bit.ly/tFMAwx. It is priced at £8.99. A useful addition to anyone's Christmas present list!
