Teachers Set to Walk off the Job

kids school.jpgTeachers across South Australia have voted to take industrial action tomorrow and for the first time in a decade, walk off the job.

It follows a breakdown in enterprise bargaining negotiations between teachers and the SA Government.

The Australia Education Union SA says they have a majority of their 13,000 members who are supporting the stop work action.

Teachers in SA are calling for more resources to support their work and their students' learning environments.

Teachers across the region are rumoured to walk out on Thursday morning with a stop work rally planned in Gladstone Square for teachers in Port Augusta.

The State Government is also facing industrial action from prison officers concerned about plans to privatise the Adelaide Remand Centre.
