People looking to study at Dundee & Angus College will have to cross picket lines if they want to attend an open day.
Tutors and teaching staff at all three campuses are due to strike next Wednesday after a vote by EIS and Fela.
All classes in Arbroath, Kingsway and Gardyne have been cancelled but a scheduled open day for future students is to go ahead, despite a number of teaching staff likely to be lined up outside in protest.
Higher education staff voted to pursue industrial action nationwide at the end of last year, with the decision being made this week to hold the Dundee and Angus strike on Wednesday.
Students at all three campuses will still have access to the building, according to D&A College, but all scheduled tutorials, lectures and teaching sessions have been postponed.
EIS and Fela said the decision to strike had been taken by members in a dispute over pay. They added two weeks’ notice had been given to the college in advance of the action and it would be for the college to decide if they remain open and what services they offer.
EIS said it was expecting a high turnout among its members on the picket line next Wednesday.
EIS general secretary Larry Flanagan said: “It is time for college management to learn a lesson from the past, and avoid the strike action by returning with a fair cost of living offer for Scotland’s further education lecturers.”
A D&A College spokesman said: “Arrangements, promotion and advertising for our open days have been in place for a number of weeks so it would be unfair to cancel at this late stage.
“Open days are an important part of our student recruitment arrangements and there will be sufficient staff on hand to provide information and answer queries for potential future students.”
