Pete Murray, NUJ President and BBC rep, will be speaking on the BBC dispute this Saturday in London.
NUJ members at the BBC voted nine to one recently to strike over the BBC’s attack on their pensions. They have been joined by Bectu and Unite members in a concerted campaign against the proposals. The threat of strike action forced the BBC into making a last-ditch offer last Friday, which the three unions have taken back to their members. Pete will be updating the meeting on the latest.
Also attending will be journalist and NUJ member Charles Atangana, who is facing deportation back to Cameroon. Charles fled Cameroon after being tortured by government troops. He will talk about his struggle for asylum in this country.
The NUJ Left meeting is on Saturday 9 October and starts at 1.30pm to 4.30pm. It is at The Cock Tavern, 23 Phoenix Road, King’s Cross, London NW1 1HB just behind Euston and St Pancras stations: http://www.qype.co.uk/place/1205433-The-Cock-Tavern-London

1) Briefing from BBC dispute
2) Charles Atangana
3) Preparations for Delegate Meeting: motions, candidates
4) Fighting the far-right
All members of the NUJ welcome. You can join the NUJ Left at the door.
