United Kingdom - Teachers strike in Northern Ireland - January 31, 2017

During the month of January 2017 teachers in Northern Ireland have been organising strikes over pay, jobs and workload. The last in the row was a strike by teachers belonging to trade union NASUWT in the Derry City and Strabane, Mid Ulster and Fermanagh and Omagh council areas. In October 2016, all five main teaching unions in Northern Ireland rejected an offer that would have seen their pay frozen last year and a rise of 1% for 2016-17. Members of the NASUWT in Belfast and Newtownabbey subsequently held a one-day walkout. About 7,000 teachers belonging to the INTO union also staged a half-day strike on 18 January.
