From 21 October, NAHT members across schools in Northern Ireland will be taking action short of strike. This follows a statutory ballot result which mandated the union to instruct its members to take action to resolve a dispute which has been running since April 2017. The dispute relates to workload, the inspection process, consultation and support for schools.
94.8% of respondents to the ballot said they were prepared to take action short of strike and 57.8% were prepared to take strike action.
NAHT(NI) President, Geri Cameron said “From 21 October, NAHT(NI) members will stop undertaking a range of tasks which we believe have no appreciable bearing on high quality teaching and learning.
“It is important that school communities understand the focus of our action is on the employers and not learners. The well-being of school leaders is critical and if the employers won’t protect them then we will.
“Our door is open to discussion with the aim of a resolution.”
