Strike Day 05 July #J5

NUT members came out on strike in force yesterday, with schools across the region being affected by industrial action against government cuts to education funding. Six hundred members and supporters from sister unions marched through Manchester, and later assembled to hear speeches from Kiri Tunks, NUT Junior Vice President, concerned parents, Manchester City Councillors, our sister union the UCU, and others.

Most importantly, we have now established the legal right to take more action in the Autumn term, if the government do not engage in meaningful talks on funding, national terms and conditions, and workload.
