BBC Workers Vote To Strike – Will Attempt To Shut Down Broadcaster

Workers at the BBC have voted to stage a strike to protest plans to cut 3,780 jobs. “Members of the Bectu and NUJ unions have voted in favour of a walk-out – probably a 12- or 24-hour stoppage between mid-May and early June. The BBC is expected to try to minimise disruption but unions said they want ‘black screens and dead air’.”
