Strike at secure centre

24th July 2009 at 01:00

Staff at a secure training centre at which Manchester College is contracted to provide teaching went on strike this week amid allegations of bullying and harassment. The University and College Union organised the strike at Oakhill Secure Training Centre, near Milton Keynes, on Tuesday. The UCU said it had no option but to take industrial action after allegations of bullying and harassment had not been dealt with. A spokeswoman for the college said that three current Manchester College staff took part in the action and that classes had run as normal. She said she could not comment on the allegations as they were part of an on-going process.
