The Lecturers’ Union, UCU, have recently notified the College management that there will be strike action on Thursday 10th May 2012.
This action is in relation to on-going national pension changes being proposed by the Government and will affect a number of colleges nationwide.
Full time students at all centres may use the Learning Centres if they wish, where support will be provided, normal classes will not take place. Unfortunately we have been unable to put in place alternative arrangements for our part time and evening classes, and therefore we have had to take the regrettable decision to cancel these.
Could all staff please ensure that students are aware of these arrangements, information will also be placed across sites, on Moodle and the Student Channel.
College centres will be open for all staff during the strike action. Staff will be required to sign in on arrival and out at the end of the day. Registers will be placed in learning centres at each site and arrangements will also be made to have registers in place at Doxford and The Place.
