United Kingdom - Unprecedented protest of Scottish teachers - January 31, 2016

Teachers in West Dunbartonshire went on strike on 12 January – in action that is unprecedented in recent times in Scotland. Members of the EIS, Scotland’s largest teaching union, took the one-day action amid growing concerns about local cost-cutting plans to reduce the numbers of depute head-teachers and pastoral staff. Principal teacher posts would also go, as different subjects are brought together into broader ‘faculties’. EIS officials will meet with the council’s ruling Labour group in an attempt to prevent further action.
