Deputy First Minister John Swinney has welcomed the £14 million pay and terms and conditions of service agreement reached with approximately 6,000 support staff in Scotland’s 26 colleges.

He said: “I am pleased to hear that college support staff have voted to accept this pay, terms and conditions offer. The deal recognises the important contribution they make to the effective operation of our colleges and I want to thank both the unions and the employers for working tirelessly together to ensure that this agreement delivers for staff and the students they support.

“National collective bargaining can only be achieved by collaborative and collective leadership such as this, and we will continue to support its implementation.”
