Islington Arts and Media School teachers ask for ballot

Issue No. 2181

Teachers at Islington Arts and Media School in north London last week asked their NUT union to ballot them for industrial action if management doesn’t agree that teachers should only “rarely” be asked to cover for absent colleagues.

According to the school’s head teacher, “rarely” means once every two weeks.

The NUT understands “rarely” to means only in exceptional circumstances.
