Industrial Action - Potential Disruption to Classes - Thursday 29 February 2024

EIS/FELA and UNISON have called for industrial action related to the September 2022 and September 2023 pay deal which is nationally agreed.

We have been advised that this industrial action will take place at UHI Perth on Thursday 29 April 2024.  

The College has made the following decisions:

Classes Timetabled on Strike Days
All classes will be cancelled unless your lecturer informs you that it will be delivered online, or you may be provided with self-directed study in some cases. Please do not hesitate to get in touch with your personal academic tutor (PAT) for further advice and guidance.

College Buildings
All college buildings will be closed with exception to the following:

  • The Academy of Sports and Wellbeing (ASW) which will remain open for ASW membership users as usual.
  • Goodlyburn will be open for senior students only that are at a crucial point in projects and productions and will need access to the recording studios, rehearsal rooms and theatre – this must be agreed in advance with the Sector Development Director

College Nursery
The Nursery will be closed.

What is UHI Perth doing about this?
We are working hard to minimise the impact on our students and their studies caused by the industrial action by continuing to support the ongoing negotiations and strongly hope that further discussions can resolve the national pay dispute and bring the industrial action to an end. 

Further Communications
Any updates and developments will be posted on this webpage and on our Facebook and X accounts.
