North Wales teachers walk out

Teachers at a Wrexham school walked out in a row over job restructuring which a union claims will mean job losses.

Staff at Darland High school were on the picket line on Wednesday morning over planned restructuring at the school.

The NASUWT union says the changes will lead to job losses at the school.

Around 20 staff walked out after a Governor sent a letter to them saying they face pay deductions if they continue action short of strike action.

Rex Philips is the Organiser for Wales from the NASUWT. He said:

"The letter threatens to deduct salary for the action our members have taken short of strike action, now are members are out on strike today, they'll lose a day's pay. We expect that. But when they've been taking action short of strike action, we don't expect them to lose any pay because the action was designed not to disadvantage pupils." 

Wrexham Council says the action is unjustified and no job have been lost.

The teachers say they'll walk out again next week if the letter is not withdrawn.

The Governors have declined to comment.
