STRIKE ACTION – 28th February and 1st March 2023

You will be aware from our letter of 17th January that strike action is planned for Tuesday 28th February and Wednesday 1st of March in relation to ongoing teacher pay negotiations.

If no pay deal has been reached and the strike goes ahead, ALL schools within Argyll and Bute will be closed on both of these days.  Early Learning and Childcare settings will remain open with the following exception:

Iona Primary ELC – closed 28th February but will re-open on 1st March

Should the position change and a settlement is found then we will update you.

We apologise that you will have to make arrangements for childcare once again due to this situation and we thank you for your understanding of this difficult situation.

Please note that service buses will continue to operate as normal.
