Improved pensions offer

Strikes planned for 5 and 6 October 2010 have been called off after BBC management tabled an improved offer on pensions.

BECTU General Secretary Gerry Morrissey BECTU said: "The union side has worked very hard over three long months to arrive at this point. We believe that the current proposals are certainly the best that can be achieved without industrial action and on this basis we will be consulting our members further. We have secured these improvements because of the willingness of all union members to make a stand against attacks on pensions; staff should be proud of their resolve".
