Jersey teachers postpone break-time supervision strike

Planned industrial action by teachers in Jersey has been postponed to allow further talks to take place.

An indefinite period of action was due from 11 June, with teachers refusing to supervise students during breaks.

Teaching unions have now decided not to boycott break time duty until 18 July, but a full day's walkout is still planned for Thursday 17 June.

Anne Southern, of the Jersey Branch of the NUT, said that talks were at a delicate stage.

But she added that every avenue was being explored to try to avoid a strike.

A public sector pay freeze has led to the dispute between the States and teachers.
