NUT: Action short of strike action starts 3 October

The NUT has today written to all relevant employers giving notice of

action short of strike action to begin on Wednesday 3 October. We are

therefore asking members to take action from October 3, not from

September 26.


Christine Blower, General Secretary of the National Union of Teachers,

the largest teachers' union, said:


"While there has been no official court challenge to the notices given

out to employers there has been an indication of a possible challenge to

the wording of the notices. Legal advice suggested that the notices were

in fact sound. However, the NUT has taken the decision that rather than

get embroiled in a pointless legal row, which could potentially detract

from the real issues we would simply reissue the notices.


"The NASUWT and the NUT are campaigning together to defend teachers and

protect education. The united approach of the two unions, representing

nine out of ten teachers, provides an opportunity to put pressure on the

Government to address the continual attacks on the teaching profession.


"The action we are taking at this stage will have a positive benefit on

children's education and restore a balance to the working lives of

teachers. The continual attacks on the teaching profession and the

erosion of working conditions and pay cannot go on."
