On Friday NZEI (the primary teacher and principal union) and the secondary teacher unions met with the Ministry of Education. This was a more positive meeting so all strike and industrial action has been paused while negotiations occur this week.
Teachers had voted to strike on WEDNESDAY 31 MAY but this has been paused while negotiations occur- we will find out on Sunday if the strike will go ahead.
The Board has agreed that IF the strike occurs the school will be closed and no staff will be onsite to supervise children.
Incase the strike does go ahead we wanted to give you as much warning as possible. We will keep you updated.
