Danish journos end strike

TV, radio unable to air news since Aug. 19

Ending more than a month of conflict, 900 striking journalists resumed work Monday at the Danish Broadcasting Corp. (DR), after voting to accept an agreement between the Danish Journalists’ Union and the Danish pubcaster.

DR’s TV channels as well as its radio stations have been unable to air news and journalistic programs since Aug. 19.

The journos objected to a so-called new salary program, in which management would abandon automatic wage increases in favor of a basic fee with individual bonuses.

According to the compromise recommended by the union, all journalists will have a 3.4% raise during the next two years and DR managers must negotiate bonus conditions with local union representatives.
