UNIONS AT the BBC are currently voting on a two-year pay offer. BBC bosses are offering just 0.5 percent above the rate of inflation next year. And the deal depends on an agreement over the allowance paid in compensation for short term rota changes.
The allowance can be as much as £4,000. Despite the neutral position of the national union, various branches are recommending rejection of the deal and a campaign of industrial action. Socialist Worker will be publishing details of activists meetings.
