Number Of RTE Journalists Call On State Broadcaster To Cut Salaries Of Top Presenters And Managers

The NUJ members say the current salaries being paid to a small number of people are "indefensible"

This is considering the organisations current financial difficulties.

RTE has announced plans to cut the pay of its highest earning presenters by 15%, but the group of journalists say this doesn't not go far enough.

They are calling for RTE to introduce a rule which would not allow anyone in the organisation to earn more than the the top civil service salary of just over 207 thousand euro.
