OU colleges prepare for winter term action

UCU branches in the remaining IOU colleges are preparing for a fresh round of industrial action as their campaign to win implementation of the 2004 pay deal and claim back the money they are owed. The remaining IOU colleges are Askham Bryan College, College of North West London, Croydon College, Dearne Valley College, Doncaster College, Greenwich Community College, Leeds College of Art and Design, Rotherham College of Arts and Technology and Suffolk New College. Strike action is likely to take place at the end of September.

The IOU campaign is not just about local disputes. It is part of a national effort to ensure that college employers implement national pay agreements. The effectiveness of the local action is greatly enhanced by support from other colleges in the regions and across the country. Please support your colleagues at these colleges in any way you can.
