NUT and NASUWT strike day 1 October
NUT and NASUWT union members are being called to take one day of strike action by their union on Tuesday 1 October 2013 and it is recognised that staff with young children may be affected
If schools decide that they cannot open, staff who are unable to make alternative childcare arrangements should speak to their head of school/service.
Subject to business need, heads of school/service are asked to give sympathetic consideration to requests for last minute approval of annual leave, flexibility in start and finish times, flexitime, making up hours at a later time or working from home (where the ages of children will allow).
Above all, heads should be fair and flexible given individual circumstances.
