1 Mins read

A number of jobs are at risk when the planned merger of Coleraine Inst and Coleraine High School comes in to effect this September.

Among the jobs at risk are those of cleaning and kitchen staff

Marianne Buick, the Area Organiser for UNISON spoke at a public meeting in Coleraine’s Lodge Hotel last week and said the amalgamation would impact members’ jobs and urged the public to fight the cuts in public services which she warned, would affect the most vulnerable in society and threaten thousands of jobs.

Ms Buick also warned that the roles of school meals workers, cleaners, classroom assistants, nursery, admin and technical staff are at risk, as well as those of teaching staff.

UNISON members are currently being balloted for strike action on Friday, March 13.
