A proposed strike against Christchurch school closures and mergers has been called off.

New Zealand Educational Institute members voted last year to strike on February 19.

Now, the union has decided to call off the industrial action.

Institute national president Judith Nowotarski said most educators wanted to remain in their classrooms next week to support children and their communities after Monday's scheduled announcement about school closures and mergers.
