teaching unions' mandate for strike action promises Autumn term disruption

10 September 2012

Following the national strike in June, the NUT have joined the NASUWT in securing a vote from their members in favour of industrial action. The ballot was over 'the erosion of pay and working conditions'. The action short of a strike is set to start on 26 September and continue 'until the dispute is resolved'.

The dispute puts school leaders in a difficult position where they have to manage the front line difficulties of running the the school in the face of strike action whilst not being able to negotiate with the unions on the substance of the dispute. This announcement is consistent with the stance of these unions against the Academy programme and the objection to proposed pension reforms. The extent of the industrial action is still to be announced.
