Teachers Impending Strike Action

by Belinda Hirst

You will no doubt have seen or heard in the media that teachers and principals have voted for strike action on 15th August. At this stage, it is set as a half-day strike in the afternoon. However, currently, there is a ballot being undertaken for teachers and principals in the NZEI union to increase this to a full day’s strike to make the government take more notice. The North Otago Primary Principals’ Association wish to inform you of the reasons around the decision to strike. We don't take this action lightly.
