Strike Action called for 24th March

Members in both FE and HE have voted to take strike action in defence of the Teachers Pension Fund. In FE, 76% voted to take strike action (turnout 28%). In HE Post 92 Universities in England and Wales 72% supported strikes (turnout 32.1%)∙

Strike action on TPS has now been called for 24th March, to join the final, UK day, of USS strikes. We will send further communications with TPS members as 24th March approaches.

Yesterday 64% of FE members in England also voted for strike action (turnout 28.5%) in a dispute about the 2010 salary negotiations. This follows the vote by 52% of HE members (turnout 34%) to take strike action in their dispute about pay and job security.

FE and HE Officers have now called a day of strike action on these claims, also on 24th March.
