Almost every state primary and secondary school in Scotland are closed today as teachers begin two days of strikes. Teachers’ Unions started a campaign of industrial action in November as part of a dispute over pay with demands for a 10% rise in wages.
The latest pay offer, which would see teachers earning up to £80,000 have their pay rise by 6% from April 2022, and then another 5.5% from the start of the 2023 financial year, has been rejected.
Glasgow Teacher Strikes
The Glasgow Southside constituency of First Minister Nicola Sturgeon will see additional targeted strikes by members of the Educational Institute of Scotland ahead of 20 days of rolling strikes beginning 13th March. The escalation of the action will include additional strikes in schools within constituencies of senior Scottish government ministers.
