BBC journalists stage strike over redundancies

Journalists at the BBC were taking part in a second 24-hour strike over compulsory redundancies, the TV channel reported. Some BBC programming including Radio 4’s Today was affected after members of the National Union of Journalists (NUJ) began their strike at midnight. The NUJ says the BBC is “unwilling to engage in finding reasonable resolutions” for those forced to leave and who face compulsory redundancy. The BBC says it is unable to agree to demands for no compulsory redundancies. From Tuesday, members will also observe a work to rule.
