Barnsley college strike ballot over redundancies

Issue No. 2158

Workers in the UCU union at Barnsley college will ballot for strike action against plans to impose 53 redundancies.

Protests against the plans continued last week. Some 40 UCU members confronted the principal on the college’s main corridor on Wednesday and forced him into a public debate. The following day another 30 turned up to lobby governors.
