Teachers unions are considering balloting their members for strike action over changes to the vaccine prioritisation list, ahead of their annual conferences which begin today.
COMMENT: Reactions from the public have been swift in condemning strike action. Tweets included:
“So the teachers want to be vaccinated before the summer holidays so that they can go abroad for holidays/summer jobs”
“Supermarket staff (etc) should be vaccinated as being essential workers”
“One might expect leadership rather than whinging from the teacher unions”
