Casualty rights blocked

BBC management responsible for Casualty are planning to dismiss staff to prevent them accruing employment rights.

The staff affected, who work as part of the props team, face dismissal after 11 months and two weeks of continuous service.

BECTU's regional official, David Donovan, is leading the campaign and a petition [72k pdf] is in circulation, which members are being urged to sign.

Completed petition forms should be returned to BECTU, Rooms 217-218, Transport House, Cathedral Road, Cardiff CF11 9SD.
