During our parents' meeting for our Y6 residential trip, one of the parents asked our HT what would happen if there was a strike during the week of the trip. HT answered that no staff going on the trip would strike during this week, even if there was a union strike going on. Now, if that were the case, I most likely would not join the strike, as it would disrupt a trip that the children are looking forward to and for which a lot of money has already been paid - but surely that is my decision and if I wanted to join the strike I would be well within my rights to do so? Was it a little presumptuous of him to answer for me? Or can he overrule in situations like that? Just curious!
