Warner Bros. Discovery (WBD) has placed more than 200 BT Sport staff at risk of redundancy.
Staff at the sports channel were transferred to WBD, which also runs the Eurosport network in November, as part of the joint venture company established between BT Group and WBD last year. Although the roles are at risk, BT Sport employees will be given priority for new roles within the combined organisation.
John Ferrett, National Secretary of Prospect, said the Union was “deeply concerned” at the move.
“Hardworking staff who were transferred only last November in roles they were told were secure are now facing an uncertain future.
“We are fully engaging with Warner Bros Discovery to understand what has led to this about-face and why not one single job currently in BT Sport is due to remain under the organisation’s stated restructure.”
