Over 20 schools in Salford are set to shut tomorrow as part of a one-day strike by the National Union of Teachers (NUT).
In all, 20 primary schools and two secondary schools in Salford are set to either close or partially close, in a move which will cause major disrpution for parents across the city.
One mum of three Louise, 31, described how the industrial action was causing problems for local families.
She has two children in a school that is closed tomorrow, and one in a school that is open.
She said: “I’m not happy about the strike.
“The strike isn’t very fair as it is not affecting the people it should be.”
NUT say that their members are striking because of dispute between the union over demands are to increase funding to schools and education, guarantee terms and conditions in all types of schools, and to resume negotiations on teacher contracts reagarding workload.
Kevin Courtney, Acting General Secretary of NUT said: “The NUT is not taking action lightly.
“In light of the huge funding cuts to schools, worsening terms and conditions, and unmanageable and exhausting workloads, teachers cannot be expected to go on without significant change.”
