BBC Resources Bectu members have voted to accept a new pay and pensions package which will bring their redundancy rights into line with the rest of the BBC following the sale period.

Among other things the agreement will mean that staff over 50 facing redundancy before 6 April 2011 will have their pension paid in full.

Bectu supervisory official Luke Crawley said: “This may be particularly important for those working in studios, because, as far as we can tell, the BBC has no plans to make any programmes in London following the closure of TV Centre in 2012.”
