Talks revived at Scottish Media

Further talks are planned on pay at Scottish TV and Grampian before a BECTU work-to-rule commences in May.
At shopfloor meetings in Glasgow and Aberdeen this week union members agreed to accept a management offer of renewed negotiations to resolve a dispute arisinf from a company decision to impose a pay rise without union agreement in January.
However, members also called for an earlier strike ballot to be put into effect by imposing a work-to-rule from May 9, the day after the proposed meeting with management of Scottish Media Group, which owns the two TV stations.
In the ballot a resounding majority of members voted for industrial action, including the possibility of strikes.
A decision on whether or not to proceed with the work-to-rule will be made according to progress at the talks with SMG.
