We had a decent turnout for our “where is the STRB?” protest at the DfE yesterday, for which we developed a theme of “Sherlcok Hinds and the Missing Report” complete with deerstalkers, magnifying glasses and a sniffer dog – some pictures are attached.
It now seems as though the STRB report will not be published until September which is truly outrageous and should make teachers very angry.
Whatever happens it is clear that we are going to have to mobilise members for a mass campaign on pay and funding and to make sure that school groups are meeting to discuss this.
As part of this we are calling a London Mobilising Meeting on Thursday 13th September at 6:00pm in Central Hall Westminster which we want to use to kick start the campaign across London.
Please do promote this to your reps and members and encourage them to book their place here.
More details will follow once we know the detail of the STRB Report and have confirmed speakers.
