Action to oppose academisation

There are coordinated strikes across Newham today, 22 February, to oppose academisation, plus a lobby of the council on 26 February.

Opposition to outsourcing and privatisation is growing —workers have the power to win.

At Avenue school, strikers held a two-day strike recently, an escalation from previous one-day strikes.

Cumberland School NEU members also held a strike recently.

NEU members are balloting for strikes at Shaftesbury School and Keir Hardie schools in the borough.
