Why are teachers are going on strike? A message to all parents and carers in Camden

posted 23 Mar 2011, 04:28 by Camden NUT   [ updated 22 Nov 2016, 03:24 by Gerald Clark ]
Teachers who are members of the National Union of Teachers (NUT) have decided to take strike action on Wednesday 30th March.
We know this may be inconvenient for you but we hope you will understand why we are doing this and that you will support us.
We are taking strike action because we are concerned that spending cuts will damage education in Camden.

These are a few of the cuts being made:
  • 2 children’s centres are being closed;
  • 22 jobs are being cut from the team which trains and supports teachers in the work they do;
  • The Cognition and Learning team that supports primary children with special needs is being closed;
  • The play service is being closed;
  • Nurseries are introducing rationing and charging and will provide less hours for children.
  • These jobs provide important support to children, families and schools.
Camden has one of the highest rates of child poverty in the UK – our schools cannot afford these cuts.

Please show your support and join on us on the day when we will show our opposition to education cuts.

Assemble 10:30am
Crowndale Centre
London NW1 1BD
(march to Town Hall)

For more information please talk to teachers at your child’s school
