Colleges face new threat of strikes.

STUDENTS across Merseyside face further disruption after the latest pay offer to college lecturers was rejected.

The Association of Teachers and Lecturers will now ballot members on one-day strike action.

The Associaton of Colleges' final offer of a 2.3% increase has been unanimously rejected by the union's 160,000 members.

Last month colleges were disrupted by twoday strikes held by the National Association of Teachers in Further and Higher Education.

Lectures were cancelled in the crucial buildup to exams.

Colleges expected to be hit include Liverpool Community College, Hugh Baird, in Bootle, Wirral Metropolitan College, St Helens College, Southport College, Ormskirk College, and Halton College in Widnes.
