Following four days of strike action at Hutchesons’ Grammar School, The EIS dispute at the School is now settled on the basis of a 7-point agreement.

EIS General Secretary, Andrea Bradley said, “This is a landmark dispute and resolution for members which has led to tangible outcomes for teaching staff. As well as this agreement, the school has also now agreed to recognise the EIS and two other teaching trade unions for collective bargaining purposes.

This means Hutchesons’ Educational Trust are the first private school in Scotland to recognise trade unions. We absolutely welcome this and hope to establish positive and collegiate relationships within the school moving forward.”
