BBC strike off for more talks

Submitted by Matthew on 18 November, 2010 - 10:48

The 48-hour strike called by the NUJ for 15-16 November was called off in order for further talks to take place with management about the pensions dispute.

A solid strike on 5-6 November with lively pickets at several BBC offices around the country persuaded management to talk to the union again. There are reports of BECTU members joining the NUJ so that they can take part in the dispute; BECTU and other unions represented at the BBC had accepted the pensions deal, which will lead to most BBC staff losing thousands of pounds.
