Thatcher alma mater strike

23rd June 2006 at 01:00
Strike action at Margaret Thatcher's old school escalated this week as teachers held a two-day walk-out in protest at changes to senior staff pay.

Members of the NASUWT at Kesteven and Grantham girls', in Lincolnshire, staged their second strike in two weeks in protest at staff restructuring.

A further three days of action are planned next week.
