Pupils used as pawns in dispute
Teachers like myself, who work daily with Unison members, find it increasingly mystifying and that one single school i the whole of Scotland should be targeted in this way. I know that some of the East Dunbartonshire members are also unhappy at children being used in this way, so I can only assume that the union's Scottish leadership is supporting this highly questionable strategy.
I have sent a message to Keith Sonnet, the acting general secretary of Unison, in the hope that someone will bang a few heads together and allow local Unison members to resume their normal highly supportive role at the school, for the sake of the children.
