BBC Children’s strike ballot

Union members in the BBC Children's Education Unit have voted to ballot for strike action over job cuts in the department.

In the BBC's continued wave of job losses, nine staff in the Children's Education Unit are now to be issued with compulsory redundancy notices.

The BBC is set to lose staff who, for many years, have been making educational and entertaining programmes for children.
