Let’s stand up for education!
The NUT is today announcing a national strike across England and Wales on Wednesday 26 March in pursuit of the disputes that Michael Gove has caused with the profession around pay, pensions and conditions. In the run up to the strike we will engage in all talks and encourage our members to leaflet parents and engage with politicians.
We’re asking all members to:
join a leafleting campaign aimed at parents and the public in every town and city
take part in influencing Parliamentary candidates in every marginal constituency and beyond
prepare for strike action in state schools, academies and sixth form colleges across England and Wales on March 26th
We have produced a leaflet for parents that can be downloaded here in colour and here in black and white.
The NUT National Executive has taken these decisions against the background of Michael Gove’s continuing refusal to try to resolve – or even to discuss with us – the matters in dispute. The NASUWT National Executive meets next week.
It is clear that, as a result of his disputes with teachers, Michael Gove’s position is increasingly being challenged. The time to take further action and to stand up for education is now.
