Journalists at BBC Radio Derby will join strike action over BBC cuts
JOURNALISTS at BBC Radio Derby will be taking part in a national strike in a dispute over the axing of more than 2,000 jobs across the corporation.
Staff at the station will begin "working to rule" on Friday before taking part in the Monday day of action organised by the National Union of Journalists.
The father of the union chapel at Derby, Charles Collins, said: "Nobody takes strike action lightly but we shall be walking out in solidarity with our colleagues across the country, in particular those in Scotland.
"There will be picket lines but it is not clear how many members will be joining us."
According to Mr Collins the work to rule will continue after the strike on Monday and a ballot for further action will take place early next month.
