Solidarity with the NUT in England and Wales

#M26 UNISON has advised members working in schools that they should not take on any additional responsibilities given to them directly as a result of today's industrial action by the National Union of Teachers. This follows revised guidance sent to schools by the Department for Education stating that 'cover supervicors can be directed to cover industrial action.' UNISON has advised members that 'staff should not be moved from the duties they would normally have carried out in order to cover classes and frustrate the industrial action of colleagues. Members who are under pressure to cover should contact their UNISON rep, branch or region for further advice and support.'
