End of year Report- Taking more action - a rep writes
Another request for strike action may sit uncomfortably with us as we approach the end of the academic year and doubts enter our heads as to whether another strike is the answer! However, the end of year report for the NUT looks something like this:-
• NUT have been unrelenting in their campaign to engage teachers, parents, governors, communities and politicians in the real issues facing education.
• NUT have sustained a commitment to take strike action as a last resort strategy in order to highlight the passionate opposition we have to some fundamental attacks upon our professionalism.
• NUT have provided a voice about not only pensions and pay but workload, conditions of service, policy implementation as well as ensuring recruitment of qualified teachers.
• NUT have a vision of education founded upon validated research and experience which they have brought to the political table for discussion and debate.
• NUT have engaged the support of parents and the general public through campaigning.
• NUT have lobbied MPs outlining genuine concerns with heavily loaded reasoning.
• NUT continue to seek the support of all unions.
• NUT members also lobbied MP’s on June 10th.
