Petroc College staff to strike again

Members of the University and College Union will walk out in 2 weeks

Lessons at Petroc College in Barnstaple and Tiverton will be disrupted this month, as some staff strike again. 

They say they'll walk out for 2 days starting on Tuesday 29th of January. 

They're protesting about pay - and say they've seen the value of their salaries drop by a quarter in the past decade.

UCU regional official Nick Varney said: ‘It is incredibly disappointing that UCU members are being forced to take more strike action to secure fair pay. Staff have had enough of increasing workloads while their pay is eroded. The college needs to prioritise its staff and come back to us with a meaningful offer. If it refuses then further strikes are on the cards.’
