#CollegesNeedLecturers

College lecturers are under attack.

Forth Valley College are removing lecturers’ posts – by making them redundant and introducing “instructor assessors”. That includes more class contact hours, reduced annual leave, and lower pay.

That’s why EIS-FELA are taking action. Last month, 91% of branch members voted for industrial action with an impressive 68% turning out to vote. 

The college say this action is an “attack on learners” and are already trying to intimidate branch members. You can read our detailed response to these threats here. Your reps have participated in consultations and discussions with management. They’ve told them loud and clear: colleges need lecturers. But management have continued to push their cost-saving agenda - and in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic.

The only way to protect your profession is to vote yes to action short of strike.
