Schools definitely will close

Strikes that will close schools across Scotland are set to go ahead after a union rejected a new council pay deal earlier today.

The Scottish government freed up £80m so local authority body Cosla could improve the offer, which would have included a rise of about £2,000 a year for the lowest paid.

However, it has been rejected by Unison whose members will walk out on 26, 27 and 28 September in 24 council areas, including South Lanarkshire.

With the September weekend holiday, it means Schools in South Lanarkshire are now off until Friday 29th September.
