Nature strikes end

Springer Nature’s London staff have called off further planned strikes after reaching an agreement with the journal publisher, averting the threat of disruption to one of science’s leading publications. The journal’s staff, who are members of the National Union of Journalists, had been striking over a pay dispute, which has now ended with a two-year settlement. The NUJ branch had previously warned of “major disruption” to the next issue of Nature if the strike continued. The details of the new settlement have not been disclosed. But the NUJ and Springer Nature issued a joint statement last week, saying they were “pleased to have reached an agreement which ends our pay dispute through a two-year settlement and would like to pay tribute to the mutual efforts that helped us find a way forward”.
