BBC staff held a 24-hour protest over plans for forced redundancies.

A further round of union bargaining is planned between the National Union of Journalists (NUJ) and the BBC over redundancies.

This comes after the former organisation's members went on strike yesterday (August 1st) to show their dissatisfaction at proposed job cuts.

Sarah Kavanagh of the NUJ, speaking to the Belfast Telegraph, observed talks are planned with management for August 11th as they seek redeployment for some staff.

"No-one should be forced out of work like this. Our members are standing up for one another," she added.

It is the second 24-hour protest launched at the organisation in the past few weeks and it remains to be seen whether strike negotiations can be used to prevent more people taking to the picket line.

NUJ general secretary Michelle Stanistreet said it is time for the BBC to realise this is a "serious industrial dispute".

She added the demonstration had a definite effect on the quality of output in regional programmes.
