(Reuters) - Management at state-funded broadcaster BBC has reached agreement in principle with trade unions in a dispute against planned changes to its pension scheme, the BBC said on Tuesday.
Members of the National Union of Journalists (NUJ) staged a 48-hour strike earlier this month, resulting in the repeat of many programmes in place of flagship news programmes.
A further 48-hour strike was planned for November 15-16, but was called off to allow talks to take place.
"As staff will know, we met with the joint unions at ACAS today in order to resolve the final point of clarification around our pension proposals," Lucy Adams, BBC director of business operations, said in an email to staff.
Will that be the NUJ being reasonable, or was it the fact that nobody gives a toss whether the propaganda arm of The Labour Party was off air for a few days?
