As national strike action against education secretary Gove's attacks is postponed again, now, more than ever, NUT members need to vote for clear, consistent leadership. That's why NUT members should vote Powell-Davies 1 in the NUT vice-president election which is going on at the moment.

Martin's blog, electmartin1.blogspot.com explains the latest situation in the teachers' battle to defend jobs, pensions and working conditions: "Teachers were told that their unions suspended that planned day of national strike action because, in the words of the NUT's latest Teacher magazine, 'our successful and determined action has wrung from Education Secretary Michael Gove an offer of talks'. However, no genuine talks were being proposed by Gove - then or now.

The NUT/NASUWT Press Release confirms 'that plans remain in place for a national strike in England and Wales no later than 13 February 2014 in the event of insufficient progress through negotiation'. That's welcome - however, that doesn't go far enough. A date for a national strike needs to be confirmed as soon as possible - along with a plan for further escalating action after that."
