Teachers Strike 30th June Advice for Governing Bodies

On 14th June Members of the NUT & ATL voted to strike for one day on 30th June

The NUT FAQ on Industrial Action can be found below


The ATL FAQ on Industrial Action can be found below


The Law

Trade Union and Labour Relations (Consolidation) Act 1992

Employment Relations Act 2004


Test Legal Case why Pay Deductions are calculated at 1/365th instead of 1/195th


The Unions are required to give notice to employers which could be the Local Authority or a Trust for Foundations and Academies.

School Governors are piggy in the middle yet again between Government reforms, the local authority employers and the teachers.

I have started two forum threads on the subject on both UKGovernors.Org.UK and Linkedin UK School Governors Group which you might want to join in on. I am also interested to hear any other advice you have received from your Local Authority or Governor Association.
