Statutory Ballot on Strike Action - Result

The SSTA postal ballot for strike action closed today and we have received the result from the independent scrutineer.

90% of SSTA members have voted to take strike action with a ballot turnout of 62%. The ballot passed the statutory requirements of a postal ballot and gives the SSTA the legal mandate to take part in legal industrial action.

The SSTA National Executive will meet later this week to confirm the date of strike action and will be considering a strike in the week beginning the 5 December. The SSTA is required by law to give at least 14 days’ notice of industrial action.

Please Note: The SSTA will be issuing advice to all members regarding strike action in schools planned to take place on Thursday 24 November later this week.
