From The Socialist newspaper, 1 April 2015

Defend further education

Ronnie Job, Swansea West TUSC prospective parliamentary candidate

An early day motion supported by all the main unions in further education, calling for the reversal of devastating cuts in further education provision, now has the support of over 50 MPs.

Scanning the list I noticed that Welsh Labour MP, Martin Caton, representing Gower, has signed. Gower College Swansea, which has one of its two main campuses in Martin's constituency, like pretty much every college in Wales, is facing huge cuts in funding.

It is also, again like many other Welsh colleges, suffering from the Welsh Government's insistence on awarding many training contracts to private providers.

TUSC calls on Martin, who is stepping down at the General Election, to condemn fellow Labour Party members in the Welsh Government for passing on Con-Dem cuts and to demand they change course.

If you are an education worker, a student or a worker considering retraining, then Welsh Labour is letting you down badly. Find out how you can build TUSC and defend education at www.tusc.org.uk
