FE pay in Wales

Pay agreements which apply in Wales only and have been negotiated between UCU together with other trade unions and the Welsh FE employers' association ColegauCymru.

2014-15 pay award consultation

Employers have announced a 0% pay award for all FE staff for 2014-15. This was their response to a  (.pdf) file type icon joint union 3% pay claim (.pdf) [169kb]. This is a 'final offer' and they are not prepared to negotiate with us.  In light of this UCU Cymru held an indicative e-ballot (in conjunction with the other FE unions) to determine the memberships view on declaring a formal industrial dispute and ballot on taking action up to and including strike action.

The ballot closed at NOON on Friday 7 November.
