Public School Teachers

The Hon. J.S. LEE (Deputy Leader of the Opposition) (15:03): Supplementary: will the staff lose a day's pay if they confirm that they will be participating in the strike on Friday?

The Hon. K.J. MAHER (Minister for Aboriginal Affairs, Attorney-General, Minister for Industrial Relations and Public Sector) (15:03): I will double-check, but that's my understanding, yes. When strike action is taken, workers are not paid for that day. I will double-check that, but that's my understanding, yes.
