Teach­ers set to vote on strikes

The Scotsman - - News -

A BAL­LOT on in­dus­trial ac­tion by teach­ers will go ahead af­ter a meet­ing of the union’s chiefs.

Lead­ers of the Scot­tish Sec­ondary Teach­ers’ As­so­ci­a­tion (SSTA) last night voted over­whelm­ingly in favour of the bal­lot which is ex­pected to take place to­wards the end of Septem­ber.

An in­dica­tive bal­lot ear­lier this year showed a ma­jor­ity sup­ported work to con­tracted hours over the new school cur­ricu­lum.

Mem­bers want to see more in­for­ma­tion on sub­jects and greater train­ing and money in­vested in the cur­ricu­lum for Ex­cel­lence.

Ann Ballinger, gen­eral sec­re­tary of the SSTA, said: “We, very re­luc­tantly de­cided we had no choice but to go ahead.”
