I am writing to let you know that the latest vote of the PPTA Union’s membership has directed Strike Action and this time it will be a joint strike of both secondary and primary teachers, on Wednesday, 29th May 2019.
The nature of the strike is a stopping of work under the Secondary Teachers Collective Agreement. The strike will commence at 12.01am on Wednesday, 29th May and the strike will end at 11.59pm on Wednesday, 29th May.
However, a settlement is still trying to be concluded and we will not know until three days before, if the strike will occur.
I am letting you know that Waiheke High School will be open on the 29th May but not for instruction and we will be operating on a skeleton staff during the strike period.
We will update you again closer to the day.
