We hope that there is a speedy resolution to this dispute in the interests of all concerned."

I do understand that the teachers feel they have a point to make but striking will not gain them any support from parents. Why can't their well paid union officials earn their money and find a solution? If teachers have to strike they may just as well represent themselves.
