Teacher unions say that£50,000 in cash reserves held by a Pembrokeshire comprehensive rule out the need for compulsory redundancies, reports the Western Mail (p11).
The school and Pembrokeshire CC say two compulsory redundancies are inevitable at Greenhill Comprehensive in Tenby due to budget cuts, but the National Union of Teachers and National Association of Schoolmasters and Union of Women Teachers have threatened strike action could result.
The NASUWT is balloting members on industrial action, while the NUT is awaiting developments.
Both unions say the cash reserves mean there should be no compulsory redundancies, but the school head says the money had been built up over the years and was earmarked for building maintenance, which could not be put off.
