This appears to be in direct opposition to the recent developments in colleges where we are experiencing attempts to diminish the status and pay of the old-style "progressed teaching" senior lecturers.
In my own college, we are currently undergoing a "restucturing". One of the main proposals is to eradicate these senior lecturers as a category and reduce their pay.
I believe this to be unjust, ill-conceived and, arguably, wrong in law.
I would be keen to hear from anyone who has had experience (successful or otherwise) of fighting such measures. Any help or advice would be appreciated (tel: 01285 651677).
