Teacher Strike Action in East Dunbartonshire Schools

Teacher Strike Action in East Dunbartonshire Schools

The Council has been advised by the EIS, teaching union that it is calling its members out on strike action on Friday 20 January.

The union has balloted its members for strike action as part of an ongoing national pay dispute.

School Closures

As a result of the strike action, all East Dunbartonshire primary, ASN and secondary schools will be closed to pupils on Friday 20 January.

Early Years Centres, with the exception of Campsie Nursery, will remain open on both days, as they are not covered by the strike mandate.

Arrangements on the day of strike action

All school transport will be stood down for the respective days of strike action, and those in receipt of free school meals (excluding the universal provision for P1 – P5) will receive a day’s payment for the day they are not in attendance at school, in the usual way.

All school based staff not covered by the strike mandate will be advised of their work arrangements for the day of action.

Further Updates

Any further updates on strike action in relation to this ongoing national pay dispute will be published on this page as they become available.
