Clydach teachers walkout over bullying

Alec Thraves, Swansea Socialist Party

Members of the NASUWT education union at Clydach primary school near Swansea have embarked on six days of strike action in protest against a long-term bullying culture and mismanagement at the school.

A lively picket line was supported by Swansea Socialist Party members and Swansea Trades Council, of which the local NASUWT branch is an affiliate.

Pickets had a big boost when NASUWT president Angela Butler arrived from mid-Wales to show her support and solidarity for this local dispute.

Teachers just want an end to their continuous harassment and to be treated with respect and dignity.
