Lone striker!

Discussion in 'Personal' started by supergran11, Dec 1, 2011.

  1. I was the only teacher in our small primary school who actually went on strike on Wednesday. I have SEN non-contact time in the morning so no class was affected, the head covered my class in the afternoon. I don't actually think he should have done, as his own union were on strike.
    I am left feeling isolated, and a little vulnerable, as it must have been obvious to parents and governors that I had supported the strike. I am really disappointed in the colleagues who were too young, or uninformed, or apathetic, or too concerned about the loss of a day's pay to consider the long-term issues.

    Yes, those are the only possible reasons for not striking

    apart from possibly disagreeing with the fundamental argument behind the strike call
