The NUT is in dispute with the Secretary of State and is balloting members for strike action.
As more schools become academies, the coverage of the national STPCD and Burgundy Book will narrow and these protections will gradually wither away. Real term cuts in funding will have major effects on schools and teachers, whether academy or maintained.
This will further erode terms and conditions, increase workload and impede pay progression for teachers.
To All Members: Please open your ballot paper as soon as it arrives, and vote in favour of strike action to defend your terms and conditions and your profession.
