FIFE students face further disruption this week with more strike action by college lecturers taking place today (Wednesday).

The Educational Institute of Scotland (EIS) members have walked out over a refusal by college management to honour a deal over pay and conditions that was reached over a year ago.

As well as today's action, more strikes are planned with three days of industrial action due to take place next Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday and a further three strikes set to go ahead the following week as well.

At Fife College, students have been warned that most classes will be cancelled but encouraged to come in and use library facilities for self study.

All planned SQA National 5, Higher and Advanced Higher exams will run as normal on strike days.

A Fife College spokesperson said they were disappointed at the national strike action.

"We are doing what we can to minimise disruption to our students," said the spokesperson. "In the interests of our students, we would urge the EIS to suspend their strike action while national negotiations are continuing to secure an agreed settlement.”
