Birmingham BBC workers vote for strike

Issue No. 2285

BBC workers in Birmingham have voted by 87 percent for strikes.

The Bectu union members are fighting bosses’ plans to move TV and radio production away from Birmingham to Bristol.

They work in the BBC’s vision, audio and music and information and archives departments.

The workers produce radio shows such as The Archers.

They also voted 97 percent for action short of a strike.
