    Same happened at our school on the June strike in our school. Workforce of over 50 and because 5 NUT members were striking school had to shut. The Nut members lost pay, everyone else had a day at home as well but with pay! Legally our head said we do not need to tell him but for health and safety reasons we need to tell him, ummmm no it's so you know who to pay and who not.

    Non-strikers CAN be given work to do. If the HT chooses not to then that is their business.

    If people don't strike because they want a day off with pay rather than without, it doesn't say a lot for their convictions in the first place.

    Even our NUT rep is thinking of saying they are not striking as Head Teacher is and strike will still have the same impact. School can't physically open without a key holder to open it. I think being in a union, voting to strike and then saying you are not just to be paid is imorale. This strike is about more than pensions. It's about our terms and conditions, academies and supporting our professionalism. Our LA has advised our HT that as she is striking, she cannot set work for those who are not.

    Your NUT rep is an imbecile and action should be taken to remove them from the role.
  6. Exactly - well said.

    Not only is he or she an imbecile and should be removed from the role; he or she should also leave the union.
