The strike in Further Education is standing firm. And industrial action is causing major headaches for managers and government.
On Tuesday 27 September students, lecturers, and GMB stood with UNISON FE Support Workers. Across the country that classes were cancelled,nurseries closed, libraries unsupported, technology failures, health and safety concerns, additional learning needs were withdrawn and school pupils excluded from vocational training, evening classes werecancelled. Senior managers fulfilling support roles for the day.
UNISON Steward’s say a huge congratulation to all UNISON members who participated in the 2nd day of national industrial action for support staff by refusing to cross our picket line and refusing to attend work. The support for your union is recognised and applauded by the local UNISON stewards, your branch and beyond. Your participation shows solidarity and a determination to win what is a just dispute.
