BBC strike ballot opens

Ballot papers went out on 4 December to all members working at the BBC asking them to vote for strike action in the new year.

BECTU was given no alternative other than to ballot its members after the BBC refused to give any ground over Director General Mark Thompsonís plans to cut a total of 2,500 jobs, stop the Unpredictability Allowance for new employees from 1 January and make changes to the Corporationís pension scheme.
