NUJ says BBC has agreed to its talk conditions

The NUJ said today it has suspended strikes at the BBC planned for next Monday and Tuesday and will enter talks over the pensions dispute - after the corporation agreed to rescind disciplinary action against union members overseas who took part in the strike action last week.

NUJ general secretary, Jeremy Dear said: "We welcome the BBC's change of heart and agreement to enter talks following industrial action by thousands of journalists and other BBC staff. We will enter those talks determined to seek a negotiated settlement. But we remain committed, and authorised, to take further industrial, political and legal action in the event that talks fail to deliver a fair pensions settlement".
