This briefing paper sets out the current position on developments within the National Joint Negotiating Committee (NJNC), which deals with national bargaining across the college sector in Scotland. The EIS is aware that the Employers Association has (via colleges) sent a briefing to staff.

It is important for members to be able to differentiate between what has happened at the NJNC, and what the Employers want to happen at the NJNC in the future.

It is also important to stress that the NJNC has been working separately with lecturers and support staff, i.e.with lecturers and support staff carrying out entirely separate negotiations with the Employers. The actions going forward from each set of negotiations will therefore be different, although this is not reflected in the Employers’ Association Briefing.
