Unions in dispute with LA over reduction of services to schools

Both teaching and non-teaching unions have been angered by the LA's unilateral withdrawal of the payroll service to Academy schools in the city. The decision was taken without any consultation with either schools or unions. It also took no account of the fact that some Academies in the City had been established with the encouragement of the LA in order to provide a protective sponsor for other schools.
