BBC journalists vote to accept pay agreement
19 June 2009
NUJ members at the BBC have voted overwhelmingly to accept an annual pay rise worth £450 to most staff at the corporation.
More than 3,500 ballot papers were issued for a secret consultative vote. Eighty-eight percent of those voting backed the deal.
In May, the NUJ, BECTU, the electricians' union Unite and the BBC agreed a joint statement on the pay negotiations.
