9:30am Monday 18th February 2013 in News
ABOUT 20 National Union of Journalists members at BBC Oxford went on strike from midnight in a nationwide dispute over redundancies at the corporation.
BBC Oxford chapel father, Andy Gordon, said the NUJ was planning a picket line at the station in a bid to disrupt the breakfast show.
He was hoping politicians who are due to go on air to discuss Oxfordshire County Council’s budget would not cross the picket line.
The union BBC Scotland, Five Live, the Asian Network and the World Service would see job losses.
