Reporters at Britain's Japanese-owned Financial Times business newspaper have voted in favour of their first strike in 30 years over a pensions dispute, the main journalists' trade union said Tuesday.

"Financial Times journalists are poised for a 24-hour strike... as talks broke down over the management's refusal to honour pension commitments following the newspaper's sale to Nikkei," the National Union of Journalists (NUJ) said in a statement.

It said that the members voted "overwhelmingly" in favour of the action.

An NUJ spokesman told AFP that the strike was scheduled for next week but would not specify when.

Japanese media giant Nikkei purchased the FT from British publishing company Pearson for $1.3 billion last July.

"We believe our proposal reaches the right and fair balance for the FT and all of our employees," FT management said in a statement.
