The concessions made by Lyon Park Primary School that led to the suspension of planned strikes over the staffing restructure have not been sufficient according to Brent NEU and so strikes are back on.
More talks took place during the suspension period but did not settle the issue in which at least five members of staff expect to lose up to £4,500 pay a year as a result of the restructure. The NEU say that in addition teaching assistants are being required to undertake unacceptable levels of cover.
NEU members at the school have voted to continue their action and will be on strike Tuesday and Wednesday of this week and Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday next week. There was an 83% turnout in the ballot of whom 100% voted to strike.
