Glasgow College

EIS/FELA members at Glasgow College have been on strike for 13 weeks having rejected the college's plans for mass redundancies.

EIS/FELA is also balloting its members across Scotland over pay.

Local Government

UNISON has served notice of further strikes in its dispute over local government pay at Glasgow City, Renfrewshire, East Renfrewshire and Inverclyde councils.

Staff working in schools, and early years establishments linked to schools, within the four local authorities will walk out on Wednesday 1 November.

This is the first part of a rolling programme of action that will take place over the forthcoming weeks, with further strike dates and other councils being announced in due course, says UNISON. The move comes after workers represented by the union voted overwhelmingly to reject Cosla’s latest pay offer. More than 21,000 people took three days of strike action in September, resulting in the closure of 75% of Scotland’s schools.

Glasgow Museums

Museum staff are set to strike after plans to axe 38 jobs were revealed.

UNISON members in the Glasgow Museums and Collections team will take five days of strike action from Monday, October 23 as they hit back at Glasgow Life over cuts in jobs and services.

West Lothian Council

Unite the union confirmed that around 240 craft members employed by West Lothian council will take strike action in a dispute over money-owed to the workforce.

Strike action will start tomorrow at 08.00 (17 October) until 19 October when the action stops at 16.30. The members previously supported strike action by 96.3 per cent.

The dispute is due to the failure of West Lothian council to pay craft workers carrying out additional tasks under the terms of the existing craft agreement. The workforce includes joiners, plumbers, electricians, plasterers, bricklayers, skilled labourers, blacksmiths, and heating engineers.

Scottish Water

Unite has confirmed that its 500-strong Scottish Water membership have emphatically backed strike action in an escalating dispute over pay and a new grading system.

Strike action is now set to hit Scottish Water in a matter of weeks as Unite members voted by 89 per cent in support of strike action.

NHS Tayside

Unite has confirmed that NHS Tayside estates workers will escalate their strike action in an ongoing dispute over jobs, pay and conditions.

The dispute centres on the failure of NHS Tayside to locally implement recognised national conditions for trades’ persons which is contributing to an ongoing underpayment of wages. The action involves around 60 estates workers including electricians, joiners, and plumbers.

Chivas Brothers

Both GMB and Unite are ballotng members at Chivas over potenrial strike action.

Oceaneering Rosyth

Unite has confirmed that around 90 workers will be balloted on strike action in an escalating pay dispute with the Port of Rosyth based company Oceaneering.

Oceaneering International Services Limited has made a 6 per cent pay offer plus a one-off payment which by 84 per cent has been overwhelmingly rejected by the workers.

The pay offer rejection follows the workers having received a 1 per cent increase in 2022 which represented a massive real terms pay cut with inflation rocketing to hit 14 per cent last year.
