Barnsley College strike suspended

Issue No. 2442

A four-day strike by UCU union members at Barnsley College, Yorkshire, set to begin on Monday of this week, was suspended after bosses offered concessions at talks.

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

The UCU members have held six days of action so far and voted to escalate to a four-day, followed by a five-day strike. 

The suspension does not alter this. A union meeting was set for Wednesday of this week.
