The NASUWT-The Teachers’ Union, has written to Glasgow City Council in response to its unreasonable ultimatum regarding the NASUWT planned strike action in Glasgow schools scheduled for 23rd November. 
Chris Keates, NASUWT General Secretary, said:
“Glasgow City Council has a track record of acting unreasonably and aggressively against trade unions, of disregarding the rights and working conditions of teachers and other public sector workers and using public money indefensibly to pursue legal action.
“In the light of the unspecified nature of the legal challenge being mounted by the Council,  the NASUWT has a responsibility to ensure that the position of our members is protected fully and without knowing the grounds for the action it is impossible for us to establish this at this stage and in this timescale. 
“In order to protect the interests of members and the integrity of the action, the NASUWT has therefore made the decision to withdraw Thursday’s action, whilst reserving the right to issue a further notice of escalated industrial action in due course. Action short of strike action remains in place.
“The Council should be ashamed of seeking to deny teachers their right to defend their terms and conditions of service.”
