Unions warn Ofcom on jobs

BECTU and the NUJ have urged Ofcom to steer clear of decisions which could put 1000s of broadcasting jobs at risk.

Ofcom, which is due to announce tomorrow the results of its review into public service broadcasting, is still contemplating, unions believe, a cut in the BBC’s income - otherwise known as ‘top-slicing’ - to assist other contributors to the sector.

For more details see the main BECTU site.
