Eastbourne teachers strike to defend conditions

Issue No. 2153

Teachers at Park College, Eastbourne, struck on Wednesday of last week against attacks on their terms and conditions.

Members of the NUT and NASUWT unions are jointly in dispute over the issue.

Redundancies for teaching staff have not been ruled out.
