Four-day walkout due at Barnsley College

Issue No. 2441

Workers at Barnsley College were set to begin a four-day strike on Monday of next week. 

They are fighting a restructure that would downgrade jobs, push pay down and introduce performance-related pay.

The walkout follows a successful three-day strike earlier this month. 

Strikers have described “uplifting” solidarity from trade unionists across Britain.

The UCU union members plan a five-day strike next month if bosses don’t back down.
