Unions accept BBC's 2.9% pay rise

Members of Bectu, NUJ, and Amicus have voted in postal ballots to accept this year's pay offer from the BBC.
The 2.9% increase, which applies to staff in the BBC, and BBC Broadcast Ltd, won support from three out of four Bectu members who participated in the ballot. Staff should now receive the rise in their August pay packets.
Earlier this month the unions were poised for an industrial action ballot across the BBC over a 2.7% offer, which was heavily criticised for falling below the prevailing rate of inflation.
On June 29, the eve of the ballot, management improved the offer to 2.9%, and insisted that the unions should not campaign against it during the vote.
Bectu's ballot result, announced on July 26, revealed that 74.4% of members voting had accepted the BBC's revised offer.
Members in BBC Resources, BBC Worldwide, and BBC Technology, are all covered by separate pay bargaining, and since April have settled on increases ranging from 2.5% to 2.8%.
