Issue No. 1813

UNISON UNION members in further education colleges are to ballot on strikes over pay. The 25,000 support staff have rejected a 2.3 percent pay rise, worth as little as 13p extra an hour for some workers. They are demanding a 'substantial' increase that would see all support staff in England and Wales on at least £11,000 a year.

Unison is also looking for a maximum 35-hour week, nationally agreed holiday time and £4,000 London allowances.
