Teacher Strike Action - what you need to know

posted 21 May 2019, 20:06 by Debbie Stevens
As communicated in Friday's DioNews and via a web email on Monday, the PPTA has advised the Board of Trustees of Waikato Diocesan School for Girls that teachers at our school will be taking strike action on Wednesday, 29 May 2019.  
The PPTA has also advised of other proposed strike action, which includes rostering home and regional strikes. 

Upcoming Strike Action

  • 1st Action - Strike (confirmed) - Wednesday 29th May (24hrs)
  • 2nd Action - Rostering Home (not confirmed) *Rostering Home is when no formal instruction is provided for a specified year level. 
- Year 9 - Tuesday 4th June       
- Year 10 - Tuesday 11th June  
- Year 11- Tuesday 25th June  
- Year 12 - Tuesday 2nd July 
  • 3rd Action - Rolling Strikes (not confirmed) - Waikato/Taranaki/Central Plateau/WBOP - Tuesday 18th June
Under the Employment Relations Act, unions are required to give three days’ notice of a strike so formal notice will be provided to the board in accordance with that timeframe. We will then communicate this to our wider community. Should the rostering home and rolling action proceed, we will offer supervised study to those students who are unable to make alternative arrangements for care.  

I appreciate that this strike action may be an inconvenience for parents and students alike and thank you for your assistance.
