Strike action threat at BBC

Unions have called on the BBC to halt a mass redundancy exercise and enter negotiations, or face industrial action.

A meeting of BECTU, NUJ, and Unite representatives in London today, 18 October, voted to issue an ultimatum to BBC management after hearing details of a cost-saving plan which could cut up to 2,600 jobs.
