Strikers at Tower Hamlets College returned to work on Friday 25 September, after winning major concessions from the college.

According to Tower Hamlets UCU branch secretary Richard McEwan, "There were no compulsory redundancies. We saved the mentorship scheme that has helped over 700 young people to grow in confidence and study at university. We saved over 300 Esol places, helping people to learn English and join the community. We stopped all the compulsory redundancies in admin, support and youth work. We stopped cuts to A level hours. We doubled the VR offer and we saved learning mentors who provide vital one to one support for students".
