Members of the NASUWT-The Teachers’ Union at Connah’s Quay High School in Flintshire are taking the first of three planned days of strike action tomorrow (Tuesday) over adverse management practices which are having a detrimental effect on the working conditions and welfare of members.
 
Chris Keates, General Secretary of the NASUWT, said:
 
“NASUWT members are deeply disappointed that they have been forced again into taking strike action.
 
“Since the teachers last came out on strike, the NASUWT has worked hard to negotiate with the Employer over the issues of concern about management practices. Unfortunately these issues remain unresolved.
 
“The only ask our members are making is for the Employer to respect their right to be treated with dignity at work. The employer is failing to take steps to secure that.
 
“The NASUWT regrets the disruption this strike action will cause to pupils and parents and urges the Employer to make a genuine commitment to working with us to resolve the ongoing problems so that further strike action can be avoided.”
 
Siôn Amlyn, NASUWT National Executive Member for Flintshire, said:
 
“The NASUWT balloted members at the school in January because of adverse management practices affecting our members’ wellbeing and working lives.
 
“In the meantime, we have worked with the Employer and Governors to try and resolve these issues, but sadly our attempts have failed. Our members continue to suffer adverse management practices which undermine their professionalism and which causes uncertainty in their day to day work.
 
No teacher takes strike action lightly, but these issues must be resolved sooner rather than later for the benefit of all concerned.”
