BBC staff to picket Brighton studios tomorrow

Posted On 04 Nov 2010 at 12:28 pm

Some BBC staff in Brighton are expected to join a 48-hour strike from midnight tonight.

The strike, called by the National Union of Journalists (NUJ), is in protest at proposed changes to the BBC pension scheme.

It will last all day tomorrow (Friday 5 November) and all day Saturday.

The NUJ plans to picket the BBC offices and studios in Queen’s Road, Brighton, from 6am to 10am tomorrow.

The Queen’s Road studios are where staff produce programmes for the radio station BBC Sussex and contribute to BBC South television news bulletins.

Members of Bectu, the other main BBC union, have voted to accept the latest pensions offer and will not be joining the strike.
