NASUWT escalation of Industrial Action has no impact
INTO/UTU members are advised NASUWT escalation of industrial action has no impact.
Schools across the North received information recently from the NASUWT announcing an “escalation” of their industrial action.
The escalation appears to involve action only in response to other teacher unions’ industrial action on inspections.
INTO and UTU are not currently on any industrial action related to inspections and as far as we can ascertain this action by the NASUWT has no impact on INTO and UTU members nor would it seem on that union’s own members.
INTO and UTU have informed the ETI and the employing authorities of our position.
IMPORTANT UPDATE - ASSESSMENT
Please note that there is no change at present to the Industrial Action on Assessment except for those schools who are involved in the Shared Education project where teachers will use their professional judgement to award levels.
THERE WILL BE NO PORTFOLIOS THIS YEAR. THE ONGOING TALKS ON ASSESSMENT WITH THE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION ARE POSITIVE AND WE HOPE TO BE ABLE TO REPORT THE OUTCOME IN THE VERY NEAR FUTURE.
The instructions from CCEA on the collection of portfolios should therefore be ignored as the industrial action precludes portfolios being returned this year. If you have any further queries in Assessment please contact Headquarters for advice.
