The National Union of Teachers has called off a one-day strike at Longley Park College which was expected to take place today.

Staff at the Sixth Form College had voted in favour of the strike because of the threat of compulsory redundancies as it looks to cut its budget by £1m.

But the union has now says it has been assured by management that there will be no compulsory redundancies.

The National Union of Teachers (NUT) has called off a one-day strike at a Sheffield college.

NUT officer Nick Rain said: “Jobs are now secure. We were also concerned about the number of temporary contracts that were in place for teachers.

“We’ve got assurances from the college that contracts in future will be permanent, and our members will be made permanent members of staff.”
