STRIKE ACTION: Schools closed and partially closed across Worcestershire

Malvern Gazette: STRIKE ACTION: Schools closed and partially closed across Worcestershire STRIKE ACTION: Schools closed and partially closed across Worcestershire

SOME schools across Worcestershire will be closed or partially closed today because of strike action.

Teachers belonging to the National Union of Teachers (NUT) will walk out in a row over working conditions, pay and pensions.

The NUT has said teachers are demoralised by proposed changes to their working conditions and warns of future staff shortages because so many are leaving the profession.

These schools in south Worcestershire are affected today:

Newbury Secondary PRU - All parents of students affected by the closure have been notified.

So, earlier in the week we read about the fire brigade's chief using tax payer's money for an operation and now we read another article about the public sector taking the proverbial, in this case teachers striking due to pensions and salaries. I continue to find it incredulous that the public sector can continue to remain so detached from reality, and yet with each new story, they seem to raise the bar with abhorrent acts and decisions which leaves you even more astonished. And yet people in the private sector continue quietly in their lower paid jobs, with inferior pensions, just grateful they have a job. Unlike the ungrateful public sector.

When parents take kids out of school for holidays they get fined and the teaching unions tell us a childs education is of" paramount importance" how do these strikes fit into the equation??

Couldn't agree more with the comments against the Public Sector workers who are not living in the real world. The NUT are just beneath contempt , taking out their bile on the children, and then laughingly arguing parents should complain to the Government. I was a teacher for 35 years, but never took it out on the children in this vindictive way. The NUT were nutters even in my day.
