33 members of staff at Sir George Monoux College look likely to strike on Thursday
Staff at Sir George Monoux College are set to strike on Thursday.
Members of the The National Union of Teachers at the Chingford Road college are set to walk out over the claimed victimisation of NUT representatives and the “groundless” dismissal of the union’s Health & Safety representative.
The NUT has not revealed further details of the allegations.
The college says the strike is planned in response to an on-going disciplinary matter with one member of staff.
A total of 33 NUT members voted in favour of strike action.
Paolo Ramella, principal of the college, said: “We are disappointed that the NUT has voted for strike action, which the college feels is ill-advised and unnecessary.
“The strike has been called prematurely in response to a disciplinary matter that has not yet reached a conclusion, as an appeal hearing is still pending.”
He added that in the event of any strike action the college will remain open and as many possible lessons will take place.
The college says any students affected will have access to learning resources and facilities.
