BBC human resources director Lucy Adams stands down after criticism over pay-offs

Ms Adams, who joined the BBC in 2009 and will leave in March next year, said
on Thursday: “I have been discussing my decision to leave the BBC with Tony
Hall for some time now. By next spring I will have been at the BBC for five
years, which feels like a good time to try something new.”

Michelle Stanistreet, the NUJ’s general secretary, met Lord Hall on Tuesday
and outlined serious allegations that BBC human resources staff targeted
staff union activists during a bitter dispute about changes to the employee
pension scheme in 2010.

The unions have been hostile towards Ms Adams for a long time, and Ms
Stanistreet is understood to have told the Director-General that his HR
director’s position was no longer tenable.

However, a BBC spokesman said: “Lucy Adams’ decision to leave the BBC predates
the meeting between the Director-General and the NUJ.”

The NUJ is tomorrow expected to demand that the BBC reopens negotiations over
the staff pension scheme, a move that could ultimately cost licence fee
payers hundreds of millions of pounds.

The Telegraph has seen a witness statement which claims that BBC HR officials
“monitored” the emails of a member of staff who was an NUJ representative
during the industrial dispute over the pension changes.

The statement by Byron Myers, a former BBC head of human resources, which
forms part of a legal case brought by the union against the corporation over
the new pension scheme, also alleges that HR staff used “underhand tactics”
to collect information on NUJ activists and “bring cases of disciplinary
action for intimidation and bullying as a means of control”.

A BBC spokesman said: “The suggestion that Lucy Adams monitored these emails
or authorised anyone else to do so or that she orchestrated or authorised
any smear campaign against any BBC staff is false and without foundation.

“It is disappointing that these allegations have been made when they cannot be
substantiated.”

Mr Myers refused to comment.
