Staff at Montgomery Primary in Birmingham were on strike yesterday over plans to turn the school into an academy.
60 teachers and school support staff, went on strike yesterday at the school in Sparkbrook, Birmingham in protest at plans to convert to academy status.
NUT, NASUWT and GMB unions all voted for strike action, and parents are supportive.
These battles are becoming more and more common, with the exponential growth of academies. Bournville School staff showed that solidarity between workers and local community can defeat plans like these.
Solidarity with Montgomery Primary!
