Wiltshire College staff could discuss action over holiday cut row

This Is Wiltshire: Steve Stone Steve Stone

Staff at Wiltshire College could take industrial action if they are not listened to over a bid to cut their holidays.

Union members have already passed a motion of no confidence in the college’s management team because of poor staff morale and a lack of communication.

In July the college told staff, without warning, that their holiday entitlement was being cut from 37 to 30 days a year and that on days over Christmas and Easter, when the college is closed, they will have to come to work.


The original decision did not apply to management but the college was forced into a U-turn. It scrapped most of the holiday cut, except the ruling that staff will have to be at work over Christmas and Easter. This will now also apply to management.

But staff are still angry at the holiday ruling, that they have not been consulted and that a restructuring programme that began last year has still not been completed.

More than 20 staff have lost their jobs in a bid to close a £2 million funding gap.


Norman Crowther, a national official for the Association of Teachers and Lecturers, said staff were frustrated and demoralised.

“They feel they are not being listened to over the holidays issue. They feel communication is poor and there is a lack of leadership,” he said.

“We are asking them to listen to the concerns of the staff. At the meetings I have attended it is obvious they care and they want to help the college succeed.”

He has written to the college governors with the vote of no confidence motion, which was agreed by 92.6 per cent of members from a 62 per cent turnout.


He says staff may discuss industrial action if they continue to feel ignored.
The restructuring programme began before Christ-mas and is led by vice-principal Andrew Clare.

Staff have complained about a lack of information and vision, saying the restructuring has been badly handled and has taken too long.
Several members of staff in areas such as human resources have been forced to apply for new posts and have left within hours of being told they were unsuccessful.


Mr Crowther said: “We are appealing to the management to sit down with staff and give them a clear direction.

“We feel that the management and the governors lack stability at the moment.”

Chairman of governors Steve Stone denied he has given principal Di Dale a timescale within which to pacify staff.
He also dismissed the no confidence vote.

Mr Stone, who is set to step down next year along with vice-chairman Tim Mason, said: “When an organisation is undergoing a cost-cutting exercise there is always unrest. It is not the job of the governors to negotiate with unions.

“I am confident the management team can sit down and work with the staff.

“They have to accept that we are in a difficult financial situation. The management is doing a good job, I am delighted with the success rates. Of course, that is down to the staff as well.”

He said he and other governors will be at staff briefings in the coming weeks.

Most working people would be only too happy for the holidays which teachers get, this just shows how out of touch with reality these greedy, self-centred, taxpayer-funded parasites are. Sack the lot of them and replace them with Eastern Europeans who will be quite content to do the job under the new T&Cs.

If most working people would be only too happy for the holidays teachers get then why don't you advocate replacing teachers with most working people - with yourself at the front of the queue? Bringing Eastern Europeans into the mix was totally irrelevant.

the employees at Wiltshire college do not get holidays when the students are not there, it is not like the state schools.

Most working people do perhaps 35-40 hours a week. Many teachers do 5 days of 11 hours plus around 5-10 hours at the weekend - you do the maths!! The best, of which my wife is one, do not walk into the school at 8.30am and then out of the school door at 3.30pm! And even then they do plenty of hours work during those school holidays!

Wiltshire college are doing worse than this, they are changing peoples working hours without consultation- making them lose hours- without compensation and trying to tell them that they have no point to raise when they challenge this!
If they are being made redundant on hours they are legally entitled to redundancy. Contracts with Wiltshire college seem to mean little if they think its OK to do this. Interesting the senior managers responsible for the financial trouble the college is in are still there.

I don't feel that replacing them with "eastern europeans"(bit of a broad sweep)would help the college.
the college needs to enforce accountability and targets.most of the senior staff would sink quickly in the real world.they appear to be untouchable and complacent.the college dinosaurs who moan about "change" are the same people who've created a lot of the problem!!shape up or ship out

Even if the staff do take action it will not make that much difference to the students, since the start of term this September my daughter has got to college only to be sent home due to either lack of staff or building work, in a 6 week term she has completed 8 days of a full-time course! There is no communication between management and staff resulting in the students being let down, luckily she drives, others have to wait around for hours for their buses. Worried they will dis-credit her for lack of attendance by the end of the year she still makes the journey to register on the very rare occasion she is told in advance. Being a 3rd year student this academic year is supposed to be the most important for her qualifications, Wiltshire College is a complete joke, she would have been better off accepting the apprenticeship she was offered.

@Mrs DummerF;
Yes, we & most people would love the holidays these staff get, so why haven’t we/they applied for the jobs?
If it was that easy to do the job, why aren’t there queues of people applying for each teaching post? From what I read & hear there definitely aren’t, so there must be something else putting people off becoming these ‘self-centred.. parasites’.

I have acquaintances & friends who teach & indeed spend evenings, weekends & yes, lots of the holidays marking, planning, improving courses, etc. There is definitely a jealousy of the amount of holidays they get, & yet I have heard myself say, & still hear others say “I wouldn’t do your job for love nor money, for all the hassle you get”! I have heard the tales from my own kids, who describe where kids will tell teachers to “F*** off!” (& worse), & yet because these kids are spoken to by their parents in this way, they see nothing wrong with it! These parents, by the way, who can’t be bothered to instil any manners or common decency or courtesy whilst bringing up their offspring, will then complain about poor teaching & lacking discipline!! (Getting off soap box now, as I got off topic, sorry & yes I realise most of us do try to bring up our kids properly).

I won’t complain how easy someone else’s job is until I’ve tried it myself (yes, I have tried voluntary teaching).

I agree with Mrs Donny, ABLPR & several others here. Surely the issue is the change to the contract? What they bought into & are being paid for, has suddenly been changed. I realise if you’re retired you can’t try it, but how would any of us like it if we suddenly find our pay reduced, our holidays reduced, or e.g. being told you now have to work till 8pm every day, from what was a 9-6 job?
I cannot comment about the quality of any teaching at the college, I have no evidence either way.

Headlines from today's newpapers:
"Entry tests for teachers will be more rigorous to raise quality".
"The current numeracy and literacy tests are too easy".
"Michael Gove states that rigorous selection of trainees is the key to raising teaching standards".
"The plans are part of wider measures to raise the quality of teachers, this is what parents expect and children deserve".
"We need to raise the bar on entry to create an outstanding workforce of teachers".
Well, what a surprise, the teaching unions are already voicing their opposition and see this as an opportunity to increase the pay of teachers. Where does the ignorance demonstrably lie? I rest my case.

Surely raising the bar for better educated teachers is something only poor quality applicants will complain about?
In my job, I’d rather work with someone skilled than someone I have to ‘carry’ to achieve the product quality we need! Unions answering immediately & ‘asking for more’ is because that’s what unions do.
This has nothing to do with the above headline/article.
If we’re going to go off topic again, can I ask Mr Gove for more ‘parenting courses’, which might have helped me bring up my kids better when we were younger, & help others now so their kids stop disrupting my kids’ lessons.
(see, you made me get out the soapbox again – I’d just put it away!)
.. I did get lost as to what case you were resting though!

Whether the standard of teaching needs to improve, or whether Michael Gove is just grandstanding, still does not equate to your claim that all teachers are greedy, self-centred, taxpayer-funded parasites. So the ignorance still demonstrably lies with you, case rested or not.

I used to work at Wiltshire College and I can assure you it was far from a doddle. Maybe you should post which FE college you worked at so that we can all go and work there.

The first Wiltshire College restructuring process started four years ago. I believe the staff there are now on at the fourth restructure. That is one every year. Just think about how you would feel if every Christmas your boss held a meeting and said your job is at risk for FOUR years!!
