MEMBERS OF the Scottish lecturers’ EIS-ULA union have beaten back an attempt by their employers to impose a new contract in all new university staff from 1 January. The contract involved a 20 day cut in annual leave, an unlimited working week including evenings and weekends, performance related pay and an end to automatic annual increments.

The union leadership was then forced to agree to ballot members on industrial action after the council decided to impose the contract. A number of branches put pressure on the union, including 80 members at Paisley University who signed an open letter. The employers have now agreed to postpone implementing the contract.
