Dispute may require union bargaining

Union bargaining may aid school dispute.

24 January 2011

Union bargaining may be required to resolve an ongoing dispute against proposed changes that lecturers claim will damage students' education.

Richmond College staff held a third strike today (January 24th) to protest against cost-cutting proposals by the principal, which would see job cuts and a restructure of management roles, reports the Richmond and Twickenham Times.

The newspaper states the walk out has forced Mr Ansell to cancel a parents evening that had been planned for first year students.

David Carrier, chairman of the college's University College Union, said: "We believe that this re-structuring will damage students for many years to come if it goes through."

He added the employees are not striking for extra money nor for anything which could bring benefit to themselves, but rather because they believe the students will suffer from the changes.

Union bargaining may also soon prove useful after the The Association of Teachers and Lecturers revealed it is preparing to ballot members about action against proposed changes to pensions.
