East London teachers set to strike against victimisation

Issue No. 2460

NUT union members at George Monoux College were set to begin a two-day strike on Wednesday of this week in defence of two sacked teachers.

Strikers say bosses at the east London school wrongly sacked Flor Thompson and Diana George last year—they plan to walk out every week until the summer break. 

They want the school to reinstate the teachers or offer them a financial settlement.
