EIS faces staff strike over pay

Issue No. 2106

Members of the Unite union at the Education Institute of Scotland (EIS) have voted by 100 percent for strikes over their salary settlement, which should have been paid from 1 April.

Management made a final offer of a five-year pay deal to the administration staff.

Tony Trench, Unite regional official, said, “EIS is in a sound financial position and can therefore afford to honour the salary settlement. They are only asking for retail price index as an award for their hard work.

“Our members have been forced to vote for strike action to make management take them seriously.”
