BBC dispute

ON 30 November, the day the Freelance went to press, the unions at the BBC were in meetings at ACAS (the Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service) seeking clarification of an agreement over the pensions dispute. Strikes were therefore suspended.

And, an NUJ reps' meeting on 7 December having agreed to the ACAS wording - including a guarantee that the BBC will not seek to use its discretion in respect of pensions revaluation until at least April 2017 - the present stage of the dispute is concluded.

Watch for updates.
