Workers will walk out over the college’s continued refusal to negotiate pay, says the union.
This latest round of strikes follows four days of industrial action in September.
UNISON submitted a pay claim to senior managers at the college a year ago, for a 10 per cent increase with a minimum rise of £2,000, backdated to September 1, 2022. It also called for minimum pay to be raised to the real living wage of £10.90 per hour.
The college rejected the claim, saying it does not negotiate over pay. It is now imposing a pay award on staff for the current academic year 2023-24.
