Thread Name: BS: Teachers on strike UK
Subject: RE: BS: Teachers on strike UK
As far as I know teachers do lose pay when they take strike action, unless they are paid from union funds - but I'm not absolutely sure about that.

Other people's childcare is not the responsibility of teachers. Presumably parents who work have things in place for those occasions - a child could be taken ill at school and have to be taken home with no warning.

Arguments can get silly when they are taken too far.
