Schools in Tayside will be among the worst hit when teachers step up their strike action this month. Secret plans are being drawn up by the Education Institute of Scotland for a five-week period of disruption beginning on January 15. During that time specific schools will be only open two days a week and EIS have warned that the constituencies of Government ministers - such as Solicitor-General Peter Fraser’s Angus East are at the top of their lists.
Community and voluntary groups in Tayside and North Fife are being invited to apply for cash to help run their activities. Radio Tay has £9,000 to be divided among charitable organisations.
