NUT/NASUWT joint action welcome, but more needed

Plans for joint action announced - but firmer action needed to protect teachers and education

The announcement at yesterday's joint NUT/NASUWT press conference that plans are being put in place for joint strike action between the two main teaching unions, the NUT and NASUWT, will be welcomed by teachers who have been waiting since Christmas for national action to be called to oppose Gove's plans to impose performance-related pay.

However, as the details become clearer, many teaching union members will feel that the plans have to be strengthened if teachers are to successfully oppose Gove's attacks on their pay, pensions and conditions.
