Industrial Action - 7th December


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 further industrial action. This next stage of industrial action by teacher trade unions means that schools across Scotland will be targeted on specific days.


We have been notified by the Scottish Secondary Teachers’ Association (SSTA) and the National Association of Schoolmasters Union of Women Teachers (NASUWT) that their members will strike on Wednesday 7 December 2022.


Based on the information currently available, this will mean disruption to some Primary, Secondary

and ASN schools and/or classes on this day.


The purpose of this letter is to provide notice so that you can consider contingency plans for childcare for this day.  I will provide a further update later this week, or as information becomes available.


We have also been made aware by the EIS trade union their members will strike on

  • Tuesday, 10 January 2023 (Primary and nursery)
  • Wednesday, 11 January 2023 (secondary schools)


I trust that this information is helpful.


Yours sincerely


Skayne Dodds


Head Teacher
