Industrial Action – Teacher Trade Unions

Dear Parent/Carer

Industrial Action – Teacher Trade Unions

I am writing to inform you that following a ballot of their members, trade unions for Teacher employees have informed the Council of their plans for industrial action.

The planned strike day is Thursday, 24 November 2022.

Based on the information currently available, Primary, Secondary and ASN schools will not be able

to open for pupils.  This includes nursery classes in Primary schools.

Please note that 52-week nurseries and stand-alone nurseries will be able to open as normal. This

includes St Paul’s Nursery, Newton Farm Nursery and St Mary’s Nursery, Lanark, which although

based in schools are not subject to closure.

The purpose of this letter is to let you know of the planned industrial action on 24 November by the teacher trades unions and that the school is likely to be closed on this day.  You may wish to make contingency plans for childcare on 24 November 2022.

School breakfast clubs will not operate on the day of the strike.

Yours sincerely

Head Teacher
