The BBC has issued the following statement in reposnse to the action:
“We are extremely disappointed that the Unions have gone ahead with today’s strike and apologise to our audiences for the disruption to services. We have had constructive meetings with the Unions in recent weeks and whilst we’re unable to postpone planned compulsory redundancies for six months as they requested, we do agree that stress and workload are areas of real concern. If workloads are going up because of the pressures of working in a 24/7 digital media environment and implementing savings, it’s in everyone’s interest to understand the issues and work with individuals, their managers and the unions to address it.”
