NUJ seeks strike negotiations to avert BBC walkouts

BBC workers are planning to go on strike in July over job cuts.

11 July 2011

The National Union of Journalists (NUJ) has called for strike negotiations with the BBC to avert industrial action.

Plans are afoot for protests on July 15th and 19th over proposed job cuts in the organisation, as the NUJ seeks to force the reinstatement of BBC World Service workers.

NUJ general secretary Michelle Stanistreet said: "[We are] prepared to continue talks and negotiate meaningfully with the BBC in order to avert industrial action. I hope they take up this offer [for] a sensible resolution."

She added it is not acceptable that people are being forced out of their roles when there are others in the organisation who are willing to leave.

Ms Stanistreet continued by saying that the BBC is not acting in a fair and proper manner.

Should union bargaining fail to reach a resolution between the two parties, then strikes similar to those taken by teaching bodies in June could occur.
