United Kingdom -Deal on working conditions at college -February 20, 2014

Further strike action has been suspended at Edinburgh College, one of Scotland's largest colleges, after a deal was reached on working conditions and pay. Members of the Educational Institute of Scotland's Further Education Lecturers' Association (EIS-FELA) went on strike in protest at their continuing low pay and the damaging changes to conditions of service that college management were proposing. Trade union EIS will put the proposal to its members in a ballot. The main controversy was about management's 3% pay offer that would still leave the lectures amongst the lowest paid lecturers in Scotland.
