Did u know we're on strike next week Tue.and Wed. 24 & 25 March. See last week copy of Will. & Brent Chronicle.
Its about harmonisation of pay in line with most other colleges nationally except 4 inc. CNWL, who have failed to implement a national agreement since 2004.
Vagg awarded herself a huge pay rise within the last year.
Other colleges have been petitioned for support.
Sen, our new hyperactive (but right on) branch secretary, asked me to contact u to see if you could mobilise any support for a picket at Wills. that coincides with the college's annual 'Industry Day' allegedly to be opened by Lord Young. They're reputedly flying in a helicopter (hire cost £12,000) for the occasion.
Do you think Trades Council and/or Greens would be interested?
We're also looking for musicians to entertain the troops.....
(and artists to capture the occasion in paint?!)
