Below is a fill in the blanks letter to the HT with the action which the members have decided to take being the blanks. You need to meet with other members to fill in the blanks ideally prior to Weds with this letter being sent to the head (by me if necessary) once you have met. Our recent ballot means that this action is protected.
Dear Head Teacher,
You will no doubt be aware of the recent NUT workload ballot and the joint NUT/NASUWT action against a bullying government/OFSTED driven inspection regime and its leading to high teacher and Head Teacher stress levels , a bullying culture and excessive workload with no feeling for the well-being of the profession.
The NUT/NASUWT members at ……………………….. school met recently and had concerns about the following issues
So in line with the non-strike action beginning on Weds 26th they have decided the following:
We believe that this action is the best way to deal with this issue and we hope that like many other Heads you will support this lawful and protected action, where there is opposition or members feel victimised or their action is undermined then the action would be escalated up to and including school based strike action, although obviously we are hoping that it won’t come to that and that you will support the stand our members/your staff are making against a bullying inspection-led (and not learner led) centered system of education).
If you have an questions please do contact us. Along with our school reps we would be more than happy to meet with you to discuss this action.
