Over 30 schools in Newtownabbey are set to be affected by proposed strikes this week.

A number of nursery, primary, secondary and special schools are set to be affected by the proposed strikes.

Members of the NASUWT, the lagest teachers’ union in Northern Ireland will be taking strike action in schools across Belfast and Newtownabbey on Wednesday, November 30.

Chris Keates said of the list of schools: “The NASUWT is taking a rolling programme of strike action and has published a list of all schools in Belfast and Newtownabbey which is the geographical area that will initially be affected.

“The schools that will be affected are the ones that have NASUWT members, which is the vast majority of those schools.”

The action is the first wave of the planned programme of rolling strikes across Northern Ireland.
