Dispute at Cilcain primary school resolved

A DISPUTE at a Cilcain primary school which prompted industrial action has been resolved.

Teaching union NASUWT held a strike at Ysgol y Foel last month after a decision to make a teacher redundant.

But today (Friday) a joint statement issued by Flintshire County Council, the governing body of the school and the union announced the dispute was resolved.

The statement said: “As an alternative to redundancy, it has been agreed that the teacher selected will move from a full-time to a part-time, mornings-only contract.

“This compromise alleviates the redundancy situation and avoids the need for the cross phasing arrangements.

“Consequently, the redundancy notice has been withdrawn.”
