NEU workers’ strike

Members of Unite, employed by the National Education Union (NEU) in London, took a 48-hour strike on 20-21 April in support of a victimised worker who they believe was unfairly disciplined. The workers voted 94% in favour of strike action in support of Michael Gavan, who is a regional officer at the NEU and a Unite rep. Michael was disciplined on a matter that members believe should have been dealt with informally or through mediation.
