Popular breakfast show host Jason Reynolds is now threatening industrial action over his expenses claim.
The station has torn up his invoices after his and our panda’s shocking behaviour on the summer roadshow when they got drunk and failed to turn up for their show. The pair were fined a weeks wages and issued with a warning.
But it appears they have support from high places with Labour Deputy Leader Angela Rayner allegedly backing them in the Commons yesterday at PMQ’S ahead of this mornings official strike announcement.
The first strike date is on Friday July 8th which is expected to cause massive listener disruption and send the airwaves into chaos.
Breakfast team statement:

PRESENTERS AND NON-DEMONSTRATIVE AUDIENCE (PANDA) – that we will stage a series of walk-out strikes throughout the summer months, beginning on Friday 8th July.
There is no place in 2022 for this form of economic bullying in the
workplace and a collective stand is the only inevitable course of
action. Whilst we are open to continued dialogue, a significant
sea-change in archaic attitudes is required to prevent industrial
