Cumbria Colleges on strike for pay, pensions and the future of FE

Colleges in Cumbria took strike action on 24th March 2011 to fight to keep a decent pension and to try and negotiate a better pay rise than the derisory 0.2% that has been offered. In the run up to the strike, there was some good coverage of the issues, including:



Picket Line at Kendal College (above) which had a good turnout, support from students and a visit from the press.
On the day, some strikers travelled to Newcastle for the march and mass rally and the media covered the action as well (see link below)
