Staff plan two day walk out at Barnsley College

Issue No. 2431

Workers at Barnsley College were set to begin a two-day strike on Wednesday of this week to defend jobs and conditions.

The UCU union members are angry at the imposition of new contracts. The new contracts bring in new roles that cut pay and holidays for some workers.

Workers struck against the attack on 14 October and some students refused to cross picket lines.
