SCHOOLS across Warrington could be forced to close for the day after the Nation Union of teachers confirmed a walkout will go ahead on Wednesday.

Teachers across the country will strike over an ongoing dispute over pay, pensions and working conditions.

It is not clear how many teachers in Warrington, who are NUT members, will join the strike or if any schools will face disruption because of the industrial action.

The largest teaching union in the UK, NASUWT, have decided not to join their colleagues on the strike despite joining forces last autumn to hold two regional strikes.
