Two Conference amendments

Two amendments to propositions for the BBC Divisional Conference 2007 have been submitted.

The amendments, both to proposition 3, have been accepted onto the agenda by the Standing Orders Committee (SOC) for the BBC Divisional Conference scheduled for 29 April 2007 in Bournemouth.


Proposition 3: [untitled]

This branch is concerned at the fall out from the value for money exercise. The reality is hitting home as those left are expected to pick up the workload from those made redundant. Staff are expected to work longer as they were already working smarter. BBC staff need to be protected from managers always asking for more.

That this Divisional Conference with the support of the NJC takes fully into account the extra work expected of the staff who have stayed at the BBC (after VFM exercises) when negotiating future terms and conditions with the BBC.
