Proposed Strike by UNISON, GMB & NUT
The above unions are proposing to take strike action on Thursday 10th July 2014.
Many of our employees such as support staff (catering, cleaning, admin, teaching assistants) and teachers are represented by these unions.
A risk assessment has been undertaken and unfortunately there will not be sufficient staff to open school on Thursday therefore Nant Celyn Primary will be closed for all pupils.
Apologies for this inconvenience but there really isn't any alternative. Should the unions withdraw their proposal to strike we will of course let you know.
Thank you for your support.
An afternoon where the children experience something a little bit different!
