The Independent Education Union (IEU) has called for Protected Industrial Action (strike action) to take place in Catholic schools across NSW and the ACT in support of a new Enterprise Agreement (EA). Some schools in the Diocese of Parramatta have agreed to take part in this action. Staff from St Columba’s Catholic College are among those taking part.
The industrial action will happen this Monday, 4 December 2017. It will begin from the normal commencement of the school day to 12.30pm.
The safety and wellbeing of all of our students is always our number one priority. Supervision will be provided at the College, however, the absence of most staff for a significant portion of the day will result in no classes running until staff return at 12.30pm.
