NUT THREATENS ACTION OVER REORGANISATION CONSULTATION

Britain's biggest teaching union is threatening to take industrial action in Bedfordshire over lack of consultation about restructuring, reports BBC Three Counties.

The National Union of Teachers believes the county is facing cuts in education services when Luton BC becomes a unitary authority next year.

The NUT says Bedfordshire will have to suffer reductions in education staff in any case because of limitations of next year's county council budget, but claims the depth of cuts will be even greater because of Luton's switch to unitary status. The area most at risk, it says, is special needs education, which is already underfunded in Bedfordshire.

The NUT claims the county council has failed to meet its statutory requirement to consult with the union over restructuring of staff and insists it will consider industrial action if the situation persists.
