Soon the future ownership of Sky will be decided. Fox and Comcast are both bidding to buy the shares in Sky. Comcast are still offering a higher price for Sky shares – now £26bn. Meanwhile Disney ‘s takeover of Fox is going ahead and Fox owns 39% of Sky shares.
Speculation is high about how this will affect the company. There could be management changes, and a drive to recoup costs. Whatever the result, there will be an even greater need for a union presence to defend individuals.
