FE bargaining in England doesn't work the way we want it to. UCU wants meaningful and binding national bargaining. That is not what we have and why we have developed a strategy to fix it.

UCU general secretary Jo Grady explains here why UCU is launching a new strategy for FE pay on England.

Respect FE charter: the five asks A charter for professional respect in further education

Increases in pay alone won't solve the relentless attacks on the professionalism of staff working in FE. Punishing levels of bureaucracy, unachievable deadlines and ever increasing surveillance in classrooms don't just undermine you as educators - they are toxic to the experience of learners, too.

That is why UCU's elected further education officers have developed a new charter for professional respect in FE [128kb]. The charter demands change in five key areas, including workload and autonomy in the workplace.
