Ballot withdrawn

The industrial action ballot on the New Business and Entertainment Pillar proposals has been withdrawn.

As a result of months of concerted effort by the Branch and the threat of collective action, acceptable resolutions have been achieved for all members who faced compulsory redundancy as a result of the New Business and Entertainment pillar restructure.

ESPG branch had served notice of an industrial action ballot on BBC Studios and Post Production and issued ballot papers.

The employer made a legal challenge to the validity of the ballot, which therefore was halted.

Prior to re-starting the ballot, BECTU continued to put pressure on the employer to work with the remaining individuals to mitigate the impact of their redundancy.

This resulted in some additional agreements for individuals and the notice of industrial action ballot was withdrawn at the end of August.
