Members of NASUWT - The Teachers’ Union at Llangors CiW Primary School in Llangorse, Powys will take strike action on Wednesday 10th April over adverse management and employer practices, potential job loss, health and safety, working conditions and redundancy. Eleven days of strike action are planned through April, May and June. Teachers are striking to bring about the changes needed to safeguard the school.
Poor management decisions over the last two and a half years have resulted in an entirely avoidable redundancy situation at Llangors CiW Primary. The subsequent consultation process has been mismanaged, causing stress to teachers, parents and pupils alike. NASUWT seeks an immediate halt to the redundancy process amongst other key changes, already outlined to the LA in writing in March, which are desperately needed to restore sound management and governance at this primary school at the heart of the Llangors community.
In mid-March, NASUWT communicated with the employer to set out requirements for ending the dispute, but there has been no attempt by the employer to start serious negotiations. 

NASUWT is particularly concerned that the school and Powys County Council have continued to reference “continuing discussions” in correspondence to parents. Despite our efforts, no such discussions have taken place. These words have been referenced in local media, which has caused further distress to members and served to weaken their trust in both the school’s management and the local authority.
