Strike Action 2017

Industrial Action update

Joint Statement by EIS and Colleges Scotland

An agreement has been reached and all strikes have been suspended.

Following a period of intensive negotiations, agreement has been reached between the employers and the EIS. This has led to the immediate suspension of strike action by the EIS and will enable college management to implement the March 2016 Agreement.

After the meeting, Colleges Scotland and the EIS welcomed this breakthrough and are delighted that disruption to student learning has been brought to an end. Both sides expressed the hope that this would provide a sound foundation for the college sector moving forward.
