Pickets at Central Foundation Girls’ School

Teaching and support staff at Central Foundation Girls' School in Bow, east London struck for a second time on Friday of last week.

NUT and Unison union members joined the walkout.

The first day’s strike won a satisfactory settlement over compulsory redundancies and pay cuts.

But a third proposal to increase teachers’ contact time is still outstanding.

Workers welcomed the settlements over pay and redundancies at a mass meeting on the strike day. They also felt that management needs to move over stress and workload if a satisfactory settlement is going to be found.

Further negotiations were set to take place this week. The NUT has already informed the school of further strike days.
