Divisions

Each branch of BECTU belongs to one of five Divisions. The Divisions, sometimes referred to as Trade Groups, lead on industrial strategy for the branches they represent.

Divisional representatives meet regularly to discuss developments and policy and often make recommendations to the NEC on the direction the union should take. The NEC consults the Divisions frequently about developments within the union.

Division list

Arts and Entertainment
These pages are for content generated by your divisional officials. Divisional committees yet to appoint their page editors will do so shortly. Once the editors are in place content will appear on these pages. Divisional web page editors are encouraged to attend BECTU's training course for page editors. Divisional pages offer a welcome additional opportunity for divisions to make essential and up to date information readily available to all their members. Divisional pages are visible to members only when logged in. This dedicated divisional space can promote improved communication between divisions, between divisional committees and their branches and between branches.
BBC
Branches with members working for the BBC, its commercial subsidiaries, BBC Worldwide, and many of the Corporation's service partners, are all in BECTU's BBC Division.

The division oversees national level bargaining with the BBC, covering pay, terms and conditions, and other major issues like the frequent savings drives which are announced almost on an annual basis, and are always associated with job cuts.

Pay claims are lodged by the Division with all employers within its scope, including Siemens and Red Bee staff doing BBC work, SISLive!, the satellite and outside broadcast company, Capita, which provides HR, finance, and other services to the BBC, and a range of building services contractors among whom are JCI and Haden.
Independent Broadcasting
The division represents members working in Independent Broadcasting.
