    Re: so whos striking then

    Our school's closed. Letter went home with kids last night.

    I lose loads of days A/L at the end of the year too.

    You're not striking if you take it off as Annual Leave. I presume you didn't vote Face-Man :P

    Had lots of misconceptions at my place:
    I didn't vote, so I'm not on strike
    I voted against, so i'm not on strike

    Re: so whos striking then

    As I've said before - no - but for two reasons, really:

    1) I didn't get my ballot paper in time (I've just moved... new build property + Royal Mail = no mail deliveries :-()

    2) If I did, there'd be no IT support for the school, and although I should, I'm a bit too conscientious. Anyway, if I'm not in Tuesday, I'll have double (quadruple?!) work to do on Weds...

    We had a letter saying that unless you had already booked the day off - you couldn't use annual leave.

    IndieGirl: I have been in my house nearly 18 months and hadn't heard anything about it till someone mentioned it in school. My Mum who is in Unison has lived in her house 21 years and hadn't heard anything till I mentioned it!!

    I think that's kinda the point

    I would've voted no - but I'll go with the majority, such is democracy!

    Re: so whos striking then

    You maybe have a legitimate reason there indiegirl - not having a ballott paper, though I suppose you could've voted if you really wanted too.

    You're saying the rest of us don't care?

    I work all the time on my sch network, there's just so much to do. Not what a Union would wnat to hear either. But I haven't spent a day off the network since I got remote access last year. Before that I've lost 19 days annual leave in a year.

    Yeah ther's always going to be more work, and you'll have to do it. What's that got to do with standing and being counted as a group so that people who are fighting for your working conditions and pay can show they have some backup.

    Respect to you for being honest.

    [I voted no too BTW Andy]

    Re: so whos striking then

    We will be on strike. No IT support, students told not to come in. Staff told to come in; those who don't get docked a days pay.

    I have asked the Head of ICT to leave the servers in peace for the day!

    (I wondered about changing admin password, disabling remote desktop.... but decided against it).
