Taking on the Media Barons

Synopsis
As the British trade union movement gathered to discuss "taking on the media barons" at a special TUC conference at Congress House London on Saturday 17 March, 2012, Nicholas Jones spoke to the NUJ General Secretary, Michelle Stanistreet, and BECTU’s Assistant General Secretary, Luke Crawley, about the issues facing the media unions in the wake of the phone hacking scandal. The shocking revelations unfolding at the Leveson Inquiry have provided the clearest possible example of the corporate abuses and illegality which can thrive in a workplace where trade union membership has been banned.
