Teachers at Monoux College to strike over union victimisation

Members of the National Union of Teachers at Sir George Monoux College in Walthamstow are planning a two day strike this week over the sacking of two union officials. The strike will include Wednesday 6 May and election-day Thursday 7th.

The union claims that the two long-serving and highly respected sacked teachers – Flor Thompson and Diane George – were victimised because of their role as union representatives. The strike follows a one-day strike over the same issue in March.

Union members will picket the school both days. On Thursday part of the college will be used as a polling station, but NUT members will not be picketing the entrance to that area.
