Students join the picket line in December

Three unions were set to strike together on Wednesday of this week at Birmingham’s Montgomery primary school.

Workers in the NUT, NASUWT and GMB unions are resisting plans to force the school to become an academy. They struck last December against the plans (pictured).

Parents are also opposing the academy and have handed in a 700-strong petition demanding a proper consultation.
