NUJ says members will reject BBC pension deal

Further to my story about a rank-and-file campaign to reject the BBC's latest pensions proposal the National Union of Journalists (NUJ) has now predicted a no vote in the consultative ballot which is about to start.
The Broadcasting, Entertainment, Cinematograph, and Theatre Union (Bectu) and Unite are also balloting members over the offer.
BBC workers will work-to-rule on October 22 as some action must be taken to keep their ballot alive under the UK's restrictive trade union laws.
A big no vote from all three unions will give strength to their negotiators and confidence to everybody if the threatened strike action goes ahead.
The Trades Union Congress (TUC) - the umbrella organisation for unions in Britain - voted for co-ordinated action against cuts. Are any other workers going to join the BBC in taking action?
