This is the second edition of UNISON Scotland’s Further Education Activist Bulletin for the 2016 pay campaign. Please print and use.
UNISON members across Scotland’s 20 further education (FE) colleges will go on strike on Tuesday, September 6, for fair pay. This dispute is about justice and fairness. College bosses awarded lecturing staff a £450 flat rate rise in May 2016, while most college support staff have been offered a flat rate of £230.
It’s simple. UNISON thinks support staff should be treated the same as other college staff – you work for the same employer; provide a professional service to the same student body; are equally qualified in your roles. Support UNISON Scotland’s strike for fair pay.
