TOWER Hamlets College has scrapped its plans for compulsory redundancies following a four-week teachers' strike.
Lecturers who staged a walk-out over job losses returned to work today after a deal was struck with the college in Poplar to avoid redundancies.
The deal was made during 18 hours of talks yesterday after the employment relations service Acas stepped-in.
Members of the University and College Union (UCU) said it was a "very good deal" but have pledged to continue their fight to save hundreds of English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) places that are still at risk.
