No strikes at vast majority of schools: Brisbane Catholic Education

The Archdioces of Brisbane's Catholic Education said there will be no strike action at the vast majority of Catholic schools in the archdiocese this week.

Teachers who are members of the Independent Education Union (IEU) will strike on Wednesday at dozens of schools in the Toowoomba and Cairns dioceses, and in south-east Queensland schools run by religious orders, ABC reported.

"Of the 150 Catholic schools in the Archdiocese (which stretches from Coolangatta to Childers, just south of Bundaberg), 133 are operated by Brisbane Catholic Education. There will be NO strike in these schools as only 18.9% of teachers in BCE schools voted in favour of strike action," the archdiocese's Catholic Education said in a statement.

"This means that ALL Catholic primary schools will remain open and fully staffed, as will the majority of secondary schools.

"Only the 17 schools run by religious orders (and listed in the media release issued by the Queensland Independent Education Union) will potentially be affected by the strike."
