MADRID - Workers at Madrid's regional television station, Telemadrid, took part in a second day of strike action Tuesday that saw the output of the channel reduced to a black screen with the company's logo.

Of 689 employees, 450 went on strike in protest at the inability to reach an agreement with the company over an updated collective accord on pay and conditions.

Transmission was interrupted from 12.47pm until 5pm after a 24-hour stoppage in June.
