Teachers in no confidence motion
Teachers at three Aberdeen secondary schools have passed a motion of no confidence in the city council.

The members of the Educational Institute of Scotland (EIS) union at Dyce, St Machar and Torry academies are worried about cutbacks.

Grant Bruce, Aberdeen branch secretary, said feelings were running high in the city about staffing and resources.

An Aberdeen City Council spokesman said the authority was working closely with unions to deal with the issues.

The EIS fears between 60 and 80 teaching posts could go.
