STAFF picketed outside Isle of Wight College today (Tuesday) calling for a decent pay rise.
Isle of Wight College said contingency measures were in place during the national University and College Union (UCU) strike, but some lectures were affected.
The UCU represents more than half the 400 full-time academic staff at the Isle of Wight College.
Branch officer Phil Truckel said: "Hopefully, our message has got through from the national strike that government should fund a decent pay rise to stop us falling further behind teachers.
"We were very reluctant to strike because we knew that some disruption to students would be inevitable. But there was no other way of getting our message across that a good education is so important to students and the country that government should fund more than the 0.7 per cent currently on the table."
