Glasgow schools to close to pupils on strike day

From the Glasgow City Council Website

All education establishments in Glasgow will be closed to pupils on Wednesday 30 November.

This decision has been taken by the council because of the planned widespread industrial action by a number of public service trade unions that day.

A council spokeswoman said: “The health and safety of our children is paramount and as we have no idea of knowing how many teachers and school staff will be in each establishment until the day of the strike, we have taken the decision to close all schools on Wednesday 30 November.

“This gives parents and carers time to make alternative arrangements for the day.”

All establishments will be open as normal on Thursday 1 December.

Plans will be made for non-striking staff who wish to attend work on the day and this will be communicated to education establishments this week.
