Leaders of the three main unions at the BBC were to meet with bosses as Socialist Worker went to press to discuss the savage cuts BBC heads want to make.

The Unite, NUJ and Bectu unions are furious that BBC bosses want to slash radio stations and services.

Plans include binning two radio stations—6 Music and the Asian Network—and shedding a quarter of online staff.

Unions have set up a petition and are discussing holding a London-wide rally.

If bosses get away with cuts, they will come back for more.

Unions should ballot for strike action if management refuse to back down.
