Lexis Nexis to seek strike negotiations?

Workers at Lexis Nexis have called three days of strike action for August.

12 August 2011

Strike negotiations will be required to stop National Union of Journalist (NUJ) members who work for Lexis Nexis protesting.

An argument has broken out over the proposed pay rise offered to employees and now staff have agreed to three days of industrial action on August 19th, 25th and 26th.

NUJ committee member Dan Meredith noted that striking is a "last resort" and urged both sides to have "meaningful negotiations" in an effort to come to an agreement.

If a resolution between the pair is to be reached, then union bargaining will be required.

Michelle Stanistreet, NUJ general secretary, stated: "After several years of paltry pay rises, members are determined to get a rise that truly reflects their loyalty, commitment and sheer hard work."

It comes after BBC employees recently took to the picket line over reforms of the World Service that will see some forced redundancies - rather than redeployment.
