Teachers at St Peter's Collegiate School in Wolverhampton will be taking three days of strike action from today, the NASUWT Teachers Union has said.
The union says it's over "adverse management practices including workload, health and safety and the failure to consult."
Teachers say it's a last resort, after their employer failed to address concerns.
Strike action has been planned for:
Union bosses say strike action "could have been avoided."
We have been seeking to work with the school for several months now to address the issues of concern of members in relation to their health and safety and their working conditions. However, the current employer has not fully addressed all of their concerns despite having the time to do so.
Meanwhile, the School say the majority of staff who are not taking part in the planned action will remain in school, "so that the students can continue to learn in a safe environment and do not have their education disrupted."
We would like to thank students, parents and community for their support in recent months as the school prepares to transition into our new Three Spires Multi-Academy Trust. The Three Spires Trust has worked closely with the school to address all concerns raised, including ensuring that the school is fully compliant with health and safety regulations.
