NUBSLI members boycott LanguageLine Solutions

As a result of the unsustainable 33% cut to interpreters’ pay, NUBSLI members are boycotting the contracts held by LanguageLine in Sheffield, beginning on 1 November. Interpreters are still available for direct bookings. From 1 December, interpreters in London are also boycotting LanguageLine assignments that offer the same unsustainable rates.
