Does anyone know anything about striking while on maternity leave?

Obviously I will ring my union about this during office hours.

The NUT have decided to strike on 30th June. I am on maternity leave. Do I 'strike'?

You can protest but I dont see how you'd strike

No me neither, but wondered about pay and so on

They can't take your pay as you aren't officially striking

I don't see how you can strike tbh. You aren't expected to be at work. I suppose you could ask your employer to hold bak your maternity pay for that day but if you're on SMP I can't see how they'd do that. Maybe your best course of action would be to carry on as normal re pay but go down to the picket line (with your baby smile) and support your colleagues there?

Ok excellent. Thank you!

If you want to support the strike you could give the equivalent of a day's pay to your union as a donation.

Say you'll go in for a KIT day, then refuse. You could strike that way?
