Job cuts, workloads and bullying leads to BBC staff going on strike


Members of the National Union of Journalists within the BBC and Bectu, representing technical staff, have just begun a 12-hour strike, following a row over job cuts, workload and claims of bullying, a news report reveals.

The corporation is cutting about 2,000 jobs over five years as part of its Delivering Quality First (DQF) programme. Most of the jobs targeted by the budget cuts were eliminated through voluntary redundancies, but an estimated 110 members of staff were made compulsorily redundant.

The strike would affect programmes, including news bulletins, and the BBC has already issued a statement, saying that it was disappointed at the action and apologised for disruption.

Determining exactly which employees went on strike and just how much of their pay is due to be retained is not always an easy task for HR departments, but Tensor’s WinTA Enterprise.NET can actually make everything a lot smoother.

First and foremost, our comprehensive, affordable Time and Attendance solution allows HR managers to generate a range of useful reports, such as Absence Summary or Job Summary, that will provide precise information on the people who actually participated to the strike and didn’t attend their usual work schedule.

WinTA Enterprise.NET also reliably tracks the exact hours worked by a particular employee over a year, not to mention the fact that the system can be very easily integrated with the Tensor Access Control solutions.
