Whitestone Kahui Ako Report: not this meeting

NAG 6 Administration : Accept minutes of previous meeting
For the Board to consider .- potential industrial action - regardless of any employee's individual convictions, if NZEI members vote to take industrial action, all members are bound by it.
If the 3 hour work stoppage is agreed by a majority of members this would result in a half-day school closure on the afternoon of Thursday August 15th for all primary and intermediate schools and kura.  See Further implications of a strike are here.
Note:

Do schools have to close if teachers and principals are on strike?

It is a Board's decision whether or not to close a school. Partial closure is not an option under the law.
Principals and staff board reps should not be involved in any Board decisions about staffing during a strike or school closure as this puts them into a situation of a conflict of interest. Boards should be advised to seek advice from STA and the Ministry if they require more guidance.
