The National Education Union (NEU) has announced that they will hold six days of strike action with four days affecting our region as follows:
• Wednesday 1st February 2023: National Strike Day
• Tuesday 28th February 2023: Regional Strike Day
• Wednesday15th March 2023: National Strike Day
• Thursday 16th March 2023: National Strike Day
The strikes are being held in relation to the dispute over Teacher’s workload, pay and conditions. The result of the recent ballot has now been announced with a majority of voting members opting for strike action.
In these circumstances the school must try to sustain both its capacity to meet its statutory and social obligations to its pupils and students and its commitment to active and productive industrial relations with the members and representatives of its workforce
to comply with the recent Department for Education (DfE) Guidance on
handling strike action in schools guidance.
