Responding to analysis by the Labour Party showing that spending on further education and skills fell by £3.3billion in real terms between 2010-11 and 2017-18, UNISON head of education Jon Richards, said: “Further education should not be at the bottom of the pecking order when it comes to investment. “Colleges play a vital role in bridging the skills gap that threatens the sustainability of businesses in the UK. “Across the country we are seeing support staff jobs being cut, putting added pressure on the remaining employees.

Unions and employers link up to fight for colleges
Unions and the employers in further education have come together to launch a campaign to save the sector. As the cuts to funding bite ever deeper, colleges are finding it increasingly difficult to recruit and retain staff. Constant ‘restructuring’, rising job insecurity, unmanageable workloads and declining pay are all adding to the crisis. The Association of Colleges – the employer’s association in England – wants to offer a substantial pay rise, but without a significant injection of funding from central government will not be able to do so. In an unprecedented move, the employers, all the f...

Ballot papers are being sent out to UNISON higher education members from Friday 14 September.

Some employers have moved to ‘impose’ the offer by putting it into staff pay packets before any agreement with the unions has been reached. This is a provocative action meant to undermine our ballot.
