Lessons could be disrupted as NASUWT escalates action

DESC working to minimise disruption

A teaching union has continued industrial action this week, meaning some lessons could be disrupted. 

The NASUWT has told members not to cover staff absences or after school activities.

They're also asked not to meet or report to parents outside of timetabled teaching time,  and not to cooperate with working practices or initiatives which haven't been subject to a 'Workload Impact Assessment' agreed with the union.

It says the action short of strike is 'intended to be continuous'.

The NASUWT is in dispute with the Department of Education Sport and Culture over pay and conditions.  

Minister Dr Alex Allinson says the department is working to keep disruption to a minimum:
