BiH tv workers to strike

World Brief

Some 700 workers at Bosnia state TV (BiH tv) will go on one-day strike Thursday, and could walk out indefinitely in protest at low salaries and delays in payment.

Union leaders are also worried about the impoverished state of public television in the former Yugoslav republic.

Many believe that executives are funneling international aid money earmarked for media and public broadcasting into improving “management structures” rather than spending it on production and salary hikes.

BiH tv’s workforce is spread over the state networks Federal Radio Television (RTV), BiH Public Service, and Radio Television (RTV) Republika Srpska.
