A further update from the council has been given today (26 September) with there being no changes set to take place despite it being hoped that the strikes would be called off.

“Due to high numbers of staff taking part in this week’s industrial action in our schools and nurseries we will not be able to make any changes to the strike arrangements in place today.

“Our primary schools and nurseries will remain closed to children and secondary schools will have the same arragements as today over the next two days (Wed 27 and Thurs 28 September).

“ASL secondary schools and Glasgow Gaelic/Sgoil Ghaidhlig Ghlaschu Secondary remain closed.”
