Workers at Further Education (FE) colleges in Hull, Sandwell, and across London will strike in May.

As previously reported in Solidarity, workers at Hull Colleges Group will strike on Wednesday 9, Thursday 17, and Friday 18 May. The Hull Colleges Group plans to cut 231 full-time equivalent posts across the three campuses.

The London colleges strike is part of a ″second wave″ of action over pay and jobs in FE organised by the UCU, which had previously included colleges in Sunderland as well. Workers at Tower Hamlets College, Hackney Community College, Epping Forest, Lambeth College, Lewisham Southwark College, City and Islington College, College of Haringey Enfield and North East London, Westminster Kingsway College and Havering College in London, and Sandwell College in the West Midlands will strike on a variety of dates between Friday 11 May and Tuesday 12 June.

UCU members at Bradford College have also voted for strikes over plans to cut jobs and change contracts. Strike dates are yet to be announced.
