NUT Strike 05/07/16

On July 5, members of the National Union of Teachers (NUT) will walk out in what will be the union’s first national day of action since 2014.

Members voted overwhelmingly in favour of action in order to address school funding and to resume negotiations on teacher contracts.

In the NUT’s ballot, 91.7 per cent voted in favour of strike action, with a 24.5 per cent turnout.

It will be the latest in a series of strikes that the union has called to tackle issues that have remained similar for many years.

Chosen Hill School will be closed to Years 7, 8 and 9. Years 10 and 12 should attend as normal.
