Union launches teach­ing hot­line

The Press and Journal (Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire) - - NEWS -

A union has opened a hot­line for any teach­ers in Scot­land to re­port con­cerns about in­ci­dents of pupil in­dis­ci­pline.

Teach­ers will be able to re­port con­cerns by text or voice­mail.

It comes amid a rolling pro­gramme of bal­lots, with teach­ers at around 200 schools in­volved in a dis­pute with the Scot­tish Gov­ern­ment.

To­day will also see ac­tion short of strike be­gin in re­la­tion to pupil in­dis­ci­pline, fol­low­ing on from sim­i­lar instructio­ns over work­load.

Chris Keates, act­ing gen­eral sec­re­tary of teach­ing union NASUWT, said: “No teacher should go to work with the ex­pec­ta­tion that they will be ei­ther ver­bally or phys­i­cally abused, and while they are mem­bers of the NASUWT they will not.”
