Lecturers

LECTURERS in further education colleges are set to ballot on national strike action over pay. The national executive committee of the lecturers' Natfhe union was to meet this week to implement plans for a national ballot over our pay claim, to begin on 4 April.

The claim is for �3,000 across the board, nationally negotiated conditions, and opposition to performance-related pay. There is a sense among members that enough is enough, that we are beginning to rebuild membership and win small battles. This is helping to generate a groundswell of support for action. If the ballot is won the first strike day is planned for 1 May.

  • NATFHE MEMBER

LECTURERS IN the NATFHE union are balloting for industrial action at Colchester Institute in response to management's plans to scrap all A-level courses.
