Further education strikes photos from the picket lines

Support staff, including librarians, IT specialists, administrators, cleaners, canteen workers and estate management staff, at 21 colleges in Scotland will walk out on strike today (Thursday, February 29), in a row over pay and jobs.

Staff are still waiting for a pay rise that was due in September 2022 and their employers to guarantee any pay rises won’t be at the expense of jobs. The college workers are taking strike action as part of a dispute that has been running for 18 months.
