The University and College Union (UCU) has today announced three days of strike action at Furness College.

Staff will walkout on Tuesday 6 December, Wednesday 7 December and Thursday 15 December following the results of the ballot in which 85% of those who voted said yes to strike action. 

Members will also be engaging in action short of strike action from 8th December until 13th May, this could include not doing additional work or covering for absent colleagues. 

The action comes after the employer offered a pay award of just 2.5% alongside a one off payment of £750 for those earning less than £25k and £500 for those who earn more. RPI is currently at 14.2% so the award means staff pay has fallen dramatically behind inflation.
