The Iran International London based Anchor “Parisa Sadeghi”
International Federation of Journalists (IFJ) released a statement and condemned union busting efforts made by International, its refusal to engage with the UK government’s non-departmental public body Acas to recognize a NUJ chapel, as well as what it called a “breach of international labour standards”. International had signed a recognition deal with the British Association of Journalists (BAJ), which IFJ describes as a “sweetheart deal” with an “obscure journalists’ union”, and appointed a senior manager to represent staff while pressuring them to join BAJ. NUJ stated that BAJ had no members there before the deal was made. As of July 2020, BAJ claimed 20 members working at International while NUJ said an “overwhelming majority” of the 140 workers are its members.
