As the recognised trade union for lecturing staff in every college in Scotland, the EISFELA expects that every college will have an EIS-FELA member elected to the Board of Management.
During the years since incorporation most, if not all, Further Education Colleges in the sector have undergone structural change. This change is usually a direct result of financial difficulties.

This Organising handbook provides a suggested framework for EIS- FELA branches to work, grow and develop.
The reorganisation of Scottish FE along the lines of merger, federation and collaboration may require branches to either amend their branch rules or develop bespoke practices.
This paper has been developed to assist local negotiations and provide a context which EIS-FELA negotiators can submit for consideration by local Joint Negotiating Committees (JNCs).

Permanisation of Lecturing Staff: Guidance for Branch Negotiators. The Regulations prevent fixed term employees being treated less favourably than similar permanent employees, and limit the use of successive fixed term contracts.
