The EIS and Colleges Scotland have reached a breakthrough in the FE sector dispute.

While some details have yet to be finalised, sufficient progress has been made to allow agreement in principle to be reached. As a result, the EIS has now suspended all future planned strike action. 

Commenting, EIS General Secretary Larry Flanagan said, "This is a significant victory for EIS-FELA members and it means that the employers will move immediately to implement Phase 1 of the March 2016 pay agreement.”

FE Lecturers held a 'victory rally' on Saturday 20 May to celebrate the agreement being reached. A selection of photos are provided below.
