BBC pensions update – strike ballot result expected today

BBC staff unions are expected to announce the result of a ballot for strike action later today, following pension proposals put forward by the broadcaster in June which could see the introduction of a one per cent cap on increases in pensionable salary and the closure of the final-salary scheme to new joiners.

In a blog post, NUJ general secretary Jeremy Dear says the union expects the results to show “a massive vote in favour of action”.

He adds that an announcement is expected to be made between 3:30pm and 4:00pm today. The BBC previously told Journalism.co.uk it would be making further proposals at the beginning of September following the backlash from its initial suggestions. Its 90-day consultation period closes later this month.

More to follow later this afternoon.Similar Posts:

NUJ attacks Newsquest over proposed pension cuts

The NUJ has spoken out against reported pension scheme cuts at Newsquest.

According to a report by the union, the scheme, which is already restricted to existing staff, could now be cut. Staff were apparently informed by letter over the weekend.

Journalism.co.uk has attempted to speak to Newsquest about the allegations, but has so far been unable to get a response and told those who can comment are unavailable.

The NUJ statement follows an ongoing dispute with the BBC over the broadcaster’s proposed changes to its pension scheme.Similar Posts:
