Heamoor NUT.jpg-largeThe NUT has called off 2 days of strike action planned for this week following talks at the conciliation service over excessive workloads on teachers at a Penzance school.

The decision to suspend industrial action at Heamoor School comes after negotiators secured “sufficient progress” during talks facilitated by the conciliation service, ACAS.

Further strikes scheduled for next week (12 – 14 January) have also been suspended pending further talks in the coming weeks to try to resolve issues of workloads on the staff.

The NUT has authorised local branches to challenge school administrators on issues of increasing workloads.

However, the dispute at Heamoor School is one of just a handful around the country which has escalated to strike action.

Teachers walked out for one day last week and took strike action again today.
