West Dunbartonshire Secondary Teachers' Strike to Continue

Monday 25 April 2016 

Teachers in West Dunbartonshire’s Secondary schools will continue their ongoing campaign against cuts to Principal Teacher posts by staging two days of strike action from Tuesday 26 April – Wednesday 27 April.

Members of the EIS will be on picket lines at each of West Dunbartonshire’s Secondary schools from tomorrow morning.

Commenting, EIS General Secretary Larry Flanagan said, "EIS Representatives met with members of the Council’s ruling administration this evening in an attempt to resolve this dispute.

"However, no agreement was reached so our members in West Dunbartonshire Secondary schools will proceed with two days of strike action on Tuesday and Wednesday this week.”

He added, "Support  from our members for the strike action remains very strong, and the EIS would again urge West Dunbartonshire Council to rethink their proposals which would have long-term serious repercussions for teachers and pupils in the authority’s Secondary schools.”
