Teachers go on strike in UK

Discussion in 'Teaching overseas' started by pennyrichardson, Jun 27, 2011.

  1. I would go on strike in sympathy and support, but unfortunately, as we have already finished for this year, I will be on the beach.
    With them in spirit, though...

    Not all of us are striking.
  3. Oooh, cruel and unfair.
    Wonder if there'll be a bit of supply going...

  4. I won't be striking (wrong union) but as the rest of the school will be closed I can start clearing out my storeroom with an army of teaching assistants to aid me. This is a job that is long overdue and will probably take all day.

    I'd like to clean out my classroom. I have a feeling the head has a job planned for us - sorting resources. I will be pointing out that I'm not sorting resources for subjects where the subject leader is on strike as it will be against the strike rule of not covering a striking person. For this reason I don't think that schools can employ supply teachers. At least it is a day less to plan for.
  6. I suppose I could do a bit of pro bono...

    Only seven today! Isn't a U2 a form that you have to fill out if you are claiming unemployment benefit?
  8. No, that's a ballot form. And if you want to stay unemployed, you tick next to CON.
    I retract that - I don't do politics.
    As Biily Connolly said (when he was funny...) "Wanting to be a politician should automatically bar you from being one."
