NUT Executive seeks to build coordinated action

At yesterday's meeting of the NUT National Executive, a motion was unanimously agreed that started to build on the motions passed at TUC Congress supporting coordinated national strike action.

The NUT agreed to write to other TUC affiliates to explore the practicalities of building joint action on pay, pensions and jobs.

The motion also called on NUT negotiators to firm up and clarify with the NASUWT how to build from the action short of strike action that both the NUT and NASUWT are engaged in at present, and start to set dates for a programme of national strike action.

This will be vital given the serious further attacks that could soon be coming - on top of the attacks already faced - from the Public Service Pensions Bill and from the attacks on pay likely to be included in the report to soon be issued by the School Teachers' Review Body.

No specific proposed dates for action were agreed, but progress on these discussions will be reported to the next meeting of the NUT Executive in early November.
