England further education (FE) unions' pay claim 2024/25

27 March 2024

The joint further education (FE) trade unions in England (GMB, NEU, UCU, Unison and Unite) have submitted our pay claim 2024/25 to the Association of Colleges (AoC) in advance of this year's pay negotiations, which start in May.

You can click here to read the full claim for 2024/25.

The claim is seeking a pay offer to address the ongoing cost-of-living crisis and the fall in the value of pay by around 40% since 2010. It seeks to address increasing levels of workload. And we are seeking a new national agreement in FE with binding outcomes that all employers implement so that no member is left behind.

We will send further updates as the negotiations progress.

In solidarity

Jo Grady
UCU general secretary
