Issue No. 2486

A strike at John Cabot academy in Kingswood, South Gloucestershire, planned for Tuesday of this week, was called off after workers won all of their demands.

The NASUWT union members had been in dispute over a range of attacks on conditions, such as unannounced lesson observations.

Wendy Exton, from the NASUWT said they were like a “mini-Ofsted every time”.

Workers had planned a two-day strike and a three-day strike later this month.
