Two days of strikes at Western Isles’ colleges are taking place.

Further Education lecturers at Lews Castle College are on the picket line in in Stornoway and Benbecula today.

They say college management refuses to honour an agreement over pay and conditions made over a year ago.

The EIS union said the deal promised equal pay for lecturers in all colleges and national terms and conditions, following years of pay inequity for lecturers doing the same jobs in different colleges.

This is the third week of walkouts while a three day strike is planned for next week.

Colleges Scotland said it made a “fair and reasonable” offer.
