BSF rebuild strike

Staff at St Aloysius College in Islington, north London walked out for the fourth time this week, complaining that L-shaped design technology classrooms in a new block are dangerous.

Strikers, lead by teaching union the NUT, are calling for the school, council and contactors to resolve the situation.
