Defend Jobs Defend Education @ Chesterfield College

70 Jobs under threat.

Lecturers prepare to take action to defend education provision.

Lecturers at Chesterfield College, members of the University & College Union (UCU) are preparing to ballot for possible strike action over the College management’s plans to impose up to 70 compulsory redundancies at the College. This is the third year in a row that lecturers and other staff at the college have faced the threat of redundancy. If the redundancies are pushed through over 100 teaching staff will have lost their jobs at the college over the last three years.
UCU members at the college need your support in this important campaign to defend Further Education in Chesterfield and North Derbyshire.

    This sort of ridiculous short sighted cut back of our vital education services is something that future generations will regret.

    Colleges can save money and thus not need to make the cuts they need to by saving their share of £5m spent on vacancy advertising per year. Jobs Boards like http://www.collegejobsite.com allow you to find your next move FE Jobs and it’s free for colleges to post their FE Jobs to too! Win win!
