Members of NASUWT-The Teachers’ Union at Hasland Hall Community School in Chesterfield will be taking the first of two planned days of strike action on Tuesday (9 July).
This action is as a result of the failure of the Employer to respond to the deep concerns of teachers about adverse management practices at the school which are negatively impacting on their wellbeing and working conditions.
Chris Keates, General Secretary (Acting) of the NASUWT, said:
“NASUWT members at Hasland Hall have been left with no choice other than to take strike action due to the failure of their Employer to take seriously their professional concerns over the way in which they are being managed and working practices within the school.
“Teachers have a right to be treated with dignity and respect in the workplace and to have working conditions which reflect their role as skilled professionals.
“The NASUWT has deep concerns about working practices which are driving up teachers’ workload and the way in which pupil behaviour is being managed which has contributed to a climate in the school which is both punitive for teachers and which leaves them without the support they need to address pupil indiscipline.
“We have sought at every stage to work with the Employer to resolve these concerns, but unfortunately the Employer has failed to respond positively.
“These are dedicated and committed teachers who want the best for the pupils they teach. They regret the disruption to pupils and parents but they have been left with no choice.
“Strike action can be avoided if the Employer will agree to work with us to find a resolution to these issues.”
