NUJ in with Signal Radio


The NUJ has been awarded union recognition at Signal Radio, the
first such deal in commercial radio for the union for more than 10

The award, made through the Government’s statutory
recognition procedures, means that the union will have the right to
negotiate terms and conditions of journalists based at UTV’s Signal
Radio in Stoke.

Paul McLaughlin, the NUJ’s national broadcasting
organiser, said: “This is tremendous news. We look forward to a
positive working relationship with UTV Radio.”

Simon Humphreys,
FOC for Signal Radio said: “We are delighted. It’s a step in the right
direction, especially for journalists in Independent Radio News rooms
across the country. UTV have recently taken over and we are already
seeing the benefits.”
