Stop Creche Closures

285 Signatures Goal: 500

Children in Need.....Of Workplace Nurseries I am sending / signing this petition to register my opposition to the closure of the nurseries and the end of subsidised childcare at the BBC with a resultant loss of jobs. The BBC\'s assertion that workplace nursery provision has no impact on whether parents return to work after childbirth or adoption is erroneous. Those who work for BBC, both with and without children, say that BBC nursery places and subsided childcare are crucial in enabling parents to effectively combine a family with a career in broadcasting. The BBC\'s justification for the closure of nurseries is because they are not available to all staff. To justify both the fairness argument and a supportive attitude to working parents the BBC should be extending its childcare support. Instead of a levelling down exercise we ask the BBC to honour its valuation of staff by engaging in a levelling up exercise: those sending / signing this petition ask the BBC to keep the nurseries open and to extend its support for working parents. If the nurseries are closed the BBC will be in the position of providing no direct support for working parents.
