Possible Strike Action

Nearly every school in Scotland will be closed this Thursday if a teachers strike goes ahead.

It would mean a day off for pupils. Councils say every secondary and primary school on the Scottish mainland would close on Thursday 24th. The EIS Union is striking over a 5% pay offer. There is however still a possibility that strikes will be avoided or called off if a settlement is reached. The situation makes it difficult for parents and guardians to plan ahead next week.

We’ll post an update nearer the time as the story progresses.
