BBC staff in strike action move

July 23, 2010

It seems that the threat of strike action is never far away these days and even though there are genuine issues, the threat of strike action is a real problem for the BBC.

The issue is over the BBC’s plans to cap pensionable pay at one per cent starting next year and then revalue the pensions at a lower level.

However according to the five unions, Bectu, Equity, Musicians Union, NUJ and Unite, this will leave their combined twenty thousand membership out of pocket.

If strike action were to go ahead, this could mean parts of the BBC being unable to broadcast and the viewers could be left with a blank screen where the BBC used to be!
