Published: 9 Jul 2014 15:401 comment

A NUMBER of schools will be closed or partially closed in Bracknell and Wokingham tomorrow (Thursday) as teachers take industrial action.

The National Union of Teachers (NUT) will be taking part in national strikes on Thursday and there will also be industrial action by UNISON, Unite the Union and GMB as well as the Fire Brigades Union.

The strike has been called by the NUT over long working hours, performance related pay and changes to teachers’ pensions, and is the third time teachers will strike in the ongoing dispute with education secretary Michael Gove.

The decision to close a school is taken by the headteacher, based on a local assessment of staff availability and site safety issues, and if possible in consultation with the governing board.

Council services may also be disrupted in Bracknell Forest and Wokingham due to the strikes though contingency plans have been put in place.

    Sad that a minority of teachers have such little regard for the education of the children in their classes.

    And very sad too that they give no obvious thought to the inconvenience and child care issues that irresponsible strike action create for other hard working parents.

    Vital in today's real world that we don't cave in to unrealistic and unaffordable pay and pension demands from public sector workers.
