12 May 2023
Mayor of Derry City & Strabane District Council Sandra Duffy has expressed her solidarity with BBC Radio Foyle NUJ members who have confirmed they will be striking on Friday May 19 in protest at the recent cuts at the station.
She said – “I fully support the decision by BBC journalists at BBC Radio Foyle to go on strike next Friday 19 May. The recent cuts to programming and the demise of the Radio Foyle schedule has been detrimental to the city and region and needs to be overturned immediately.
We need as many people as possible to join with them on the picket lines next Friday.”
