Boston schools to be affected by national strike action


A number of schools in Boston are set to be disrupted by a national strike tomorrow (July 10).

The industrial action is being taken by a group of unions - Unison, GMB, Unite, Fire Brigades Union and the National Union of Teachers.

The reasons for the strikes vary across the unions, but include dispute over pay, pensions and workload.

Lincolnshire County Council has said many public services are likely to be affected by the industrial action, including schools.

Three Boston schools, it says, will be only partially open tomorrow.

They are:

- St Nicholas CofE Primary School, in Woad Farm Road (Year One, Three and Four classes closed)

- St Thomas’ CofE Primary School, Wyberton Low Road (Three classes closed, one each in Years One, Two and Four, and 11 classes open)

- The Haven High Technology College, in Marian Road (Open for Years Nine, 10 and 12)
