UNISON Janitors’ Industrial Action

Posted on Mar 11, 2016 in Latest News | No Comments

Dear Parent/Carer,

This information has come in from Glasgow City Council.

UNISON has notified the Council of the intention by some of their janitorial members in the city’s Primary, Additional Support for Learning (ASL) schools and Nurseries to take part in industrial action from Monday 14 March – Wednesday 16 March.

All our schools and nurseries will be open unless we inform parents and carers otherwise as we have contingencies in place for schools and nurseries to operate as normal.

However, as we are not able to guarantee supervision before the school bell on Monday morning, regrettably we have had to take a decision to cancel the Breakfast Clubs in Hillhead Primary School. This is the most up-to-date information we have at the moment and could change.

School lunches and snacks during the school day will operate as normal as possible.

A decision will be taken on Monday 14 March as to whether the Breakfast Clubs will operate as normal on the following two days of planned industrial action.

We apologise for the inconvenience this will cause parents and carers and we will continue to work with our colleagues in CORDIA and UNISON to resolve this matter as quickly as possible.

Further industrial action is planned by UNISON and we will keep parents and carers updated with information as soon as we have this with posts on the council website www.glasgow.gov.uk  twitter @GlasgowCC and via your child’s school or nursery.
