BBC journalists strike

BBC Strike logoBBC journalists have gone on a 24 strike in an attempt to save 30 jobs from compulsory redundancy.

Most of the 2,000 redundancies are expected to be as a result of natural wastage and a freeze on recruitment, but the National Union of Journalists (NUJ) said 30 compulsory redundancies were being disputed.

The walkout started at midnight and will last for the whole of Monday.

‘Cost saving plans’ continue to cause job losses as workers either lose their jobs or face pay freezes.

We need investment, not cuts!
