THREE schools are set to close on Thursday due to strikes by public sector workers.

Council bosses have said Bodnant Community School in Prestatyn and Rhyl schools Ysgol Llywelyn and Ysgol Tir Morfa will not open.

Carers, social workers, refuse collectors, street cleaners and teaching assistants will be among tens of thousands of local council and school support workers in Wales set to strike on 10 July as part of a UK wide action over pay.

Dominic MacAskill, UNISON Wales head of Local Government, said: “The Con-Dem Government has had local government pay and conditions squarely in its sights since 2010.

"Many council workers in Wales have been left struggling to get by, with some relying on foodbanks, second jobs and in-work benefits to make ends meet.

"In work poverty and the cost of living crisis is a real and pressing issue for a growing number of our members. This year’s offer would result in a cumulative real-term cut of almost 20 per cent for more than one million local government and school workers.”
