The National Union of Journalists, which has 4,100 BBC members, voted to reject the corporation’s “final” pension offer, which the union described as making journalists “pay more, work longer and receive lower pensions.” So the BBC journalists have gone on strike for 2 days in a row and disrupted program schedules. Flagship Radio 4 news program Today was cancelled this morning. Tonight’s news programs will also be affected. A further 48-hour strike is planned for November 15-16, with threats of more disruption over Christmas. Scaled-down news programs are being padded out with pre-packaged material, but the strike will really bite if it continues.
