MORE jobs are affected than first thought by the proposed £600,000 restructure at Barnsley College - with 88 posts likely to go and 28 staff at risk of redundancy.
College management met with the University and Colleges Union and Unison on Monday and notice was issued to unions triggering 30 days formal consultation.
UCU joint branch secretary Lee Short, a course leader for art and design at the college, which employs 800, said the figures were revealed in official documents sent to unions this week.
Last week he warned the dispute could end in strike action and that teaching staff could end up taking pay cuts of up to £12,000 a year.
