Scottish college workers ballot 92 per cent in favour of historic national strike
Formal statutory ballot to be held next January for national strike
SCOTTISH college lecturers have voted 92 per cent in favour of a national strike in a dispute with their employers, Colleges Scotland, over pay.
The strike comes after the implementation of national balloting in April 2014 and after months of deteriorating relations between lecturers unions, the government and employers over cuts to the further education sector and differential pay levels. Trade unionists want differential pay replaced with national pay scales.
