Potential strike action won’t stop schools reopening after Easter

 

Any industrial action by teachers over removing their vaccine priority won't stop schools reopening immediately after the Easter break.

A joint motion will be debated at the ASTI, TUI and INTO annual conferences, which start today.

Teachers had expected to be among the first third of the population to get a dose until last week, when the advice from the National Immunisation Advisory Committee changed.

Martin Marjoram, president of the TUI, says teachers will have to be back at work to vote on the action.
