PPTA Industrial Action

Chris Comeau —

Important Notice received about ongoing rolling strikes

Dear Parents and Caregivers

Today I received notice from the PPTA National Office that industrial action will continue for all PPTA members in the form of rolling strikes. The union is only required to provide 3 days’ notice.

The nature of this action will be ‘continuous withdrawal of labour related to particular year groups’.

What does this mean for Roncalli College and how will it impact on the students and families at Roncalli College?

PPTA members will be on strike from Roncalli College for the dates below:

   Tuesday 4 June       Yr 9 students will not be taught on this day.

   Tuesday 11 June     Yr 10 students will not be taught on this day.

   Tuesday 25 June     Yr 11 students will not be taught on this day.

   Tuesday 2 July          Yr 12 students will not be taught on this day.

I appreciate that this short notice may cause supervision issues for some families, particularly those in the junior school. If this is the case, please contact the main office with the name of your student by Friday, 31 May and we will endeavour to provide supervision for those students with non-union staff. However, we will not be providing any specialist instruction.

Thank you for your support of our teachers and I hope this industrial matter is resolved soon to avoid further disruption to student learning.
