TEACHERS across York are taking part in a one-day strike tomorrow.

Of the 64 state schools in York, 23 have so far confirmed some or all classes will be affected, and eight have still to announce, with 33 confirmed as fully open.

Teaching and other school staff will join those at hospitals, councils and fire stations across York, North and East Yorkshire for a day of national action on Thursday.

It could be the largest one-day strike over pay by public sector workers since 2010 and includes members of the NUT, GMB, Unison and Unite as well as the Fire Brigades Union.

There are more than 23,000 pupils in York schools including academy schools and those run in partnership arrangements with outside bodies such as the Church of England and the Roman Catholic Church.

If the strike goes ahead, five York primary schools will be completely closed: Hob Moor Primary School Hob Moor Oaks Special School Knavesmire Primary School Westfield Primary School Yearsley Grove Primary School.

Five of the city's secondary schools are expecting to be open as usual but Archbishop Holgate's CE Academy, Joseph Rowntree School, Applefields Special School, York High and Millthorpe School have said they will only be partially open. 

 Twelve primary schools are also expecting to be partially closed, and are telling parents their children could well be affected.

The 12 partially-closed primary schools at this stage are: Archbishop of York's CE Junior, Bishopthorpe Infant, Copmanthorpe, Fishergate, Headlands, Huntington, Lakeside, Lord Deramore's, Naburn, Park Grove, Poppleton Road and Stockton on the Forest in addition Poppleton Ousebank will be closed for training as planned.

Kersten England, chief executive of City of York Council, said: “Whilst we are expecting a certain amount of disruption, our priority is to minimise this and ensure all life and limb services remain open.

"We are putting contingency measures in place to ensure that this happens."

I mentioned this the other day.

It's an odd state of affairs when City of York Council give £300K+ of our money to the unions so that they can arrange strikes to disrupt the work of the council.

I wonder if James or Kersten would defend that this week as a good use of tax-payers money?
