IOU campaign – Four more FE colleges balloted for action as next wave are targeted

Four more colleges face ballots for industrial action on 28 April unless their managements agree to talks to implement the 2004 pay agreement. Canterbury College, City College Birmingham, Leeds College of Arts and Design, Suffolk New College will become the next wave of target colleges as the highly successful IOU campaign moves into its next phase. The IOU campaign aims to win implementation of the 2004 pay agreement on pay which introduced significantly improved pay scales for FE lecturers. 17 colleges were targeted as part of the first wave and 12 of these have either agreed on implementation or are now in talks to do so. This is a national campaign with national significance as it is about our ability to win adherence to national agreements and one feature of the campaign so far has been the level of national solidarity shown to colleagues at the target colleges.
