BBC journalists are to stage a one-day strike unless the corporation agrees to end compulsory redundancies, it was warned today.
The National Union of Journalists (NUJ) said its members at the corporation will walk out on February 18 and launch a work to rule from Friday.
The action will go ahead unless talks between the two sides next week resolve a dispute over jobs.
Michelle Stanistreet, NUJ general secretary, said: “The BBC is prepared to waste public money on needless redundancies rather than secure redeployment opportunities for those at risk.
”This demonstrates the significant failures of some managers to uphold key aspects of the redeployment agreement, let alone the spirit of the deal.
