BBC staff will cause severe disruption to Easter programming after voting to walk out over compulsory redundancies, excessive workload and bullying.
National Union of Journalist members and broadcasting union Bectu will stage a 12-hour strike on March 28 which is expected to disrupt the bank holiday schedule.
The unions are fighting the woefully misnamed "delivering quality first" programmes, which will see 2,000 job cuts across the corporation.
Strike action due to be taken by NUJ staff in Scotland tomorrow and on Monday has been called off, as has a nine-minute solidarity demonstration at London's New Broadcasting House.
But Bectu members will join the NUJ's ongoing work-to-rule from Thursday.
Bectu general secretary Gerry Morrissey said: "BBC staff have rejected management's attempts to create a modern-day BBC sweatshop."
