Many Schools Closed As ASTI Strikes

Written 3 years ago by Newsroom

Two thirds of secondary schools are closed today because of a strike by teachers.

ASTI members are staging the first of seven days of industrial action over equal pay.

It is also uncertain if schools will reopen after next week’s mid-term break due to the union’s withdrawal of supervision and substitution.

These people in the Midlands have been reacting to the strike.

ASTI President Ed Byrne has this message for parents.
