MORE than 100 Barnsley College teachers and lecturers are expected to be on strike this week.

The dispute is over a new contract which the union UCU says cuts pay for new staff and will create division among staff due to a 'two-tier' pay structure.

It's expected to disrput classes Wednesday and Thursday.

Colin Booth, Barnsley College principal, said: "The college will be open and operating as normal on both Wednesday and Thursday."
