Will BBC IT staff vote for strike and shut Cameron, Clegg and Brown up?

Tomorrow (19 March) is the day when the result of the ballot of Siemens workers at the BBC , who are members of the union Bectu, is revealed.

This is yet another example of the risks businesses take when they hand control of the welfare of critical workers to a supplier.

Bectu members will attempt to maximise disruption if the ballot results in support for industrial action. Potential action could include a 24 hour strike.

Could you imagine if they strike for 24 hours when the BBC hosts the pre-election debates between leaders of they political parties. Looking on the bright side it could shut Brown, Clegg and Cameron up for a while.

I will be in contact with the union tomorrow.
