BECTU union backs members who refuse to work on BNP broadcasts


Broadcasting union BECTUU has pledged to support members who refuse to work on party political broadcasts by the BNP.

General secretary Gerry Morrissey said in a press release today: “BECTU’s advice to its members is that where they are requested to work on a BNP party political broadcast and do not wish to do so, then in the first instance they must advise their line manager and also inform BECTU. Past experience suggests that broadcasters have ensured that those, who, as a matter of conscience, do not wish to work on such productions are rostered to other work.
“In the event that a member faces disciplinary action, then BECTU will give its full support to the member.”
