Sioned Williams MS today joined NEU teachers on the picket line in Neath and attended a Swansea rally in favour of those in all sectors who are on strike.
Today, I joined National Education Union members on the picket line at Dŵr y Felin School in Neath who have gone on strike to demand fair pay and conditions, as well as better funding for schools. These teachers work hard day in, day out for our children, and all they want is to be enabled to provide the best quality of education for pupils. This shouldn't be too much to ask for.
I was also proud to attend a rally in Castle Square in Swansea organised by Swansea Trades Council in support of all those on strike today, all those already taking action and all preparing for action. Speakers included members of PCS, UCU, NEU, Unison, Unite, GMB, RMT, ASLEF and CWU.
As Plaid Cymru's spokesperson on Social Justice and Equalities, I am proud that my Party supports those workers who are standing up for their rights and for the rights of us all. The UK and Welsh Governments need to listen to the voices of the workers.
