Penny Gower, a longstanding activist of the EIS Scottish teachers union, has been summarily dismissed from her job at Carnegie College.
Her dismissal comes after she conducted a safety inspection that caused no disruption to her teaching duties. She was given no opportunity to call witnesses or appeal against the decision.
Alan Ferguson, EIS further education president, told Socialist Worker, “It is nothing short of scandalous that a college management should act in this way. It is vital that solidarity is shown with the EIS branch at Carnegie College.”
