Members of NASUWT - The Teachers’ Union at Llangors Church in Wales Primary School in Llangorse, Powys will be taking Action Short of Strike Action from Monday 8th 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, with the first strike day to take place on 10th April.

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 redundancy consultation process has been mismanaged, causing stress and uncertainty to teachers. A key stakeholder, the Swansea and Brecon Diocese, has been excluded from the decision-making process. NASUWT members, seeking to safeguard the future of the school they love, have not taken these actions lightly.  

NASUWT wrote to Powys LA Education Directorate with a view to resolving, together with Governors, the serious issues which have led to this formal industrial dispute. NASUWT is deeply disappointed at the failure of Powys Education Directorate to engage with the union since their receipt of last week's notifications of the Union's formal ballot result. The involvement of the Llangors CiW Primary Chair of Governors has been far from constructive. The school now faces scheduled strike action and action short of strike action unless the Union’s concerns on behalf of their members are meaningfully addressed.
