Teachers to strike again

SOUTHERN Downs state school teachers and principals will join schools throughout Queensland to strike again for 24 hours next Wednesday, August 5.

The move comes after the Queensland Teachers' Union rejected the State Government's latest enterprise bargaining offer, with QTU president Steve Ryan branding the offer “an insult to the QTU's 42,000 teacher and principal members”.

“We have warned the government over and over again that the education system in this state faces imminent collapse if teachers are not attracted to the profession and retained for the long-term,” Mr Ryan said.

Mr Ryan said planned strike action for tomorrow and Thursday would not go ahead, but all QTU members would stop work on August 5.
