UNISON pledges to fight FE cuts
The public sector union UNISON has vowed to continue to fight for further education jobs and to negotiate the best conditions for workers in the face of what it calls “drastic and on-going cuts”.
At its annual local government conference, delegates heard that with more than 30,000 UNISON members working in further education and sixth form colleges across the UK, there continues to be concerns about the future of FE provision.
A recent National Audit Office report revealed that more than half of all colleges are in deficit and could face an uncertain future.This is despite the sector having lost one million learners since 2009 and 16 to 18s receiving the same funding as they did in 1990.
Conference voted to expand UNISON regional forums and to develop a regional network of further education reps to expand the fight against cuts, reduced working conditions and compulsory redundancies.
