City College Birmingham cuts spark strike

Issue No. 2156

Lecturers at City College Birmingham took strike action on Tuesday of this week against job cuts.

The strike took place after a massive 95 percent vote for action by members of the UCU union at the college.

A further 74 jobs are under threat after bosses axed 75 last year.

If the cuts go ahead the college will have lost nearly a third of its teaching staff in just over a year.
