Schools in South Lanarkshire are set to temporarily close later this month due to strike action.
Unison has rejected the latest pay offer from employers ahead of strike action by school support staff, meaning schools will be closed from Tuesday to Thursday, September 26 to 28. Schools are already off Friday 22 and Monday 25th September due to the holiday weekend.
These strike days look likely unless there is a “significantly improved offer” next week ahead of the planned action.
South Lanarkshire is one of 24 local authority areas which will be affected. Schools in North Lanarkshire remain unaffected.
