Guidance for boards on NZEI and PPTA strikes

NZEI Te Rui Roa and PPTA have announced combined strike action in the form of a full day strike on 29th May 2019.

The board will need to start planning for this, including making a decision on whether or not the school will remain open for instruction, closed but open for supervision or closed during the planned strikes.

The PPTA have advised us that they may take further industrial action after 29 May. We will provide further guidance if this occurs.

In the first instance, please consult the updated MoE/NZSTA Guidance for boards below which explains what boards need to know and do to manage the strike.

If you have further questions, please call us on 0800 782 435 (option #2)  or email
