BBC faces fresh threat of strikes

The BBC is facing a fresh threat of strikes in a row with journalists and technical staff over job losses.

Members of the National Union of Journalists and Bectu are to be balloted for industrial action after the corporation announced plans to axe 415 posts to save £48 million a year by 2016/17. The cuts will be offset by some new roles.
