This is an online meeting open to any students, where you'll be able to ask questions and get the latest info about the strike action and ongoing resulting boycott.

The lecturers' trade union, EIS-FELA are conducting a fresh round of strike days as a result of a dealock in national pay negotiations. That means that there will be further strikes in May and June. EIS have published their strike dates so we can confirm these will be going ahead on the following dates:

  • Monday 20th May
  • Thursday 23rd May
  • Tuesday 28th May
  • Thursday 30th May
  • Friday 31st May
  • The whole week of Monday 3rd June until Friday 7th June

There is a dedicated page on the College Website about strikes but the best thing to do is keep checking your EC Emails as all communications will be sent to students that way.


Resulting Boycott

In addition to this, they are engaging in "Action Short Of Strike (ASOS)", which, amongst other things, involves them not uploading results of student coursework to the results systems. That means that, even though you may have been given a grade or outcome of an assessment verbally from your lecturer, if they don't upload the results, it is not official, and, therefore, you cannot complete your course or graduate.



The team at the Students' Association are working with staff from across the College to help as many students as possible through this very stressful time, but, as a national dispute involving all Colleges in Scotland, it is not something that we can resolve ourselves. However, we want to know how this action is impacting you and if there are any unseen consequences that we need to try to address.

Please help us illustrate the damaging effects this situation is having on students by telling us how it is impacting you on the form below. We will use this information (anonymously) to highlight the injustices faced by students as a result of this situation with a hope of bringing it to an end.
