Caerleon Comprehensive School industrial action update
Posted on Friday 6th March 2020
Newport City Council has held productive discussions with the trade unions and helped to facilitate their request for the proposed restructure process to be paused to enable meaningful talks between the unions and the governing body to take place
Earlier today, further discussions were held with the unions who indicated that this would allow them to recommend to members that the industrial action is put on hold while the parties try to find a resolution to the dispute.
Councillor Jane Mudd, Leader of the council, said: "As Leader I am committed to working with all our partners to ensure the best possible outcome for the people who live, work and learn within Newport. Working together, we can overcome the problems we face and we will do this responsibly and within our legal and financial constraints.
"I attended the meeting with union representatives this week and was able to hear first-hand the concerns that led to the industrial action. The pupils and their education is at the forefront of all our minds as we try to resolve this dispute."
