Rallying call ahead of strike — see which schools will be affected

Mark Chiverton, of Unison Isle of Wight branch, one of the unions involved in the strike.

A RALLYING call has been issued by unions for the support of members and the public for Thursday’s public sector strike.

A mass rally has been called, starting at 11am outside County Hall, where representatives of all the unions — including regional officials — are expected to speak.

The Newport rally is part of the national action called by unions including UNISON, the National Union of Teachers (NUT), GMB and Unite.

Schools are expected to bear the brunt of the one day strike which will also affect Isle of Wight Council services.

It is mainly over pay, but the Island’s Fire Brigades’ Union is expected to show support for the rally.

It is pursuing its own action over pensions and the government plan to increase the fire service pension age.
