The Union of Icelandic Journalists (BÍ) will strike for the fourth time tomorrow, RÚV reports. Tomorrow’s strike will include print journalists at Morgunblaðið and Fréttablaðið, as well as photographers and videographers.

Tomorrow’s strike – the first to involve print journalists – will take place between 10 am tomorrow until 10 pm. The first three strikes, which took place in November, included only reporters, photographers, and videographers for online media.

Last week, Union members voted down a proposed agreement with the Confederation of Icelandic Enterprise (SA). The Confederation met with the Union of Icelandic journalists yesterday, but they adjourned without a contract. The two parties have not scheduled another meeting.

The first strike on November 8 marked the first time in 40 years that members of the Union of Icelandic Journalists have gone on strike.
