FE ‘IOU’: Strike at Askham Bryan College as management torpedo pay talks

Angry members at Askham Bryan College were left with no choice but to take strike action this Tuesday as talks to implement the 2004 pay agreement at the Agricultural college broke down when management introduced a longer pay scale and a series of barriers to progression. Members at the college are particularly furious as management narrowly avoided strike action earlier this year with an 11th hour commitment to implement the improved pay scales. Now, their manoeuvres have forced members into strike action and the college is firmly back in the union's sights.
