Teaching unions agree to action
SCHOOLS across Wales face a term of disruption after two of the biggest teaching unions agreed to a programme of industrial action.
Members of the National Union of Teachers (NUT) and NASUWT have backed taking action short of a strike in an ongoing row over pay, conditions and pensions.
Action will start on Wednesday, September 26, and continue until the dispute is resolved.
