IF THE STRIKE FALLS ON EID
There is a possibility that Eid may fall on Tuesday 5 July, however this will not be known until just before the day. The usual position is that employees are either on strike or at work on the day of the strike and no paid leave can be approved once the
strike has been declared.
However, this is an exceptional circumstance and would not normally be the case during strike action.
As some employees will not have booked time off yet, there needs to be fair consideration given to approving requests for time off to celebrate Eid and the usual decisions made in relation to staffing.
DATA COLLECTION – closed schools
The DfE has notified the Director of Children’s Services of the dates for the data collection exercise regarding the numbers of schools open or partially open.
