Teaching union to continue industrial action

An Island teaching union has voted to continue industrial action over a dispute with the Department of Education, Sport & Culture.

Members of NASUWT were reballoted recently over the ongoing disagreement with the DESC over pay, pensions, workloads and conditions of service.

94 per cent of members in schools voted in favour of action short of a strike with 85 per cent in favour of strike action.

87 per cent of members at University College Isle of Man voted in favour of both action short of strike action and strike action. 

Turnout was 57 per cent in schools and 50 per cent at the UCM.

Union personnel have been engaged in the industrial action since February 24 - this was temporarily suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic and resumed on June 29.

During the dispute, the union says, pupils have continued to be taught as normal.
