National teachers strike will happen this term

The NUT Executive today unanimously agreed a date for strike action this term as part of the continuing campaign on pay, pensions and workload. The date will be announced next Friday. The following circular has been sent to Division Secretaries.

CIRCULAR TO DIV SECS TODAY: PENSIONS, PAY AND CONDITIONS CAMPAIGN UPDATE

The National Executive today made a series of decisions about taking our campaigning forward. These include decisions on national strike action this term, parent-facing campaigning and actions to put pressure on all political parties.

The Executive has agreed that the strike date will be published next Friday, 7 February and local officers and members will begin to receive further materials about the action from that date.

We will be urging all divisions to set up Saturday leafleting events as part of the parental engagement and of course there will be lots of work to do building for the strike. We continue to hope that we will have other teacher organisations taking action with us but the decision that the Executive has made today on our recommendation is that we are preparing to take action alone if necessary
