Leeds and Nottingham teachers strike against bullying

Issue No. 2212

Teachers at Farnley Park Mathematics and Computing College in Leeds, West Yorkshire, struck on Wednesday of last week over bullying. The strike involved members of all three unions at the school – the NUT, NASUWT and ATL.

NUT union members at the Gedling School in Nottingham struck on Tuesday 20 July over working conditions. NUT member Ivan Wels said, “The paperwork dropped on staff – target-setting, schemes of work and other data collection methods – is keeping teachers from teaching. Accompanying the paperwork is a culture of bullying.”
