Lecturers’ strike on 24 April
The UCU has announced plans for strike action for Further Education lecturers to coincide with the action planned by the NUT on 24 April.
(Universities cannot join the action since they are entering the third year of a three year deal, although rising inflation might cause that deal to fall apart later this year.)
Although the 2007-8 pay claim remains an issue of dispute, the union is bringing forward a demand for 2008-9 for 6% (with a minimum of £1,500). They are doing this jointly with other unions in the FE sector.
