Greenwich College walkout called off

Issue No. 2452

The UCU union called off a planned strike at Greenwich College in south east London on Friday of last week. 

Workers say college bosses had threatened to refuse to attend talks at the Acas conciliation service if the walkout went ahead.

They are fighting new contracts that would impose longer hours on them, cut their holidays and introduce unannounced teaching inspections.

The UCU members have already taken several days of strikes against the attack this year.
