Grimsby Institute management are attempting to axe one in five of its teaching staff and rip up workload agreements, slash staff pay and ride roughshod over employment rights.
In 2011/12 Grimsby spent just 52.1% of its budget on staffing compared to the national average for FE of 61.5%. In 2011/12 (the latest accounts available) it made a surplus of £3.7m and as of 31/7/12 it held reserves of £19.6m.
Yet it made a signifcant number redundant in 2012 and has now come back for even more.
The UCU branch has declared a dispute and is balloting for strike action. The ballot closes on 14th June.
