From The Socialist newspaper, 12 February 2014

Teachers call national strike

Martin Powell-Davies, Member of the NUT national executive

The next NUT national strike will be on Wednesday 26 March. Every NUT rep and officer now needs to be spreading that news and building for a mass show of strength in opposition to education secretary Gove's damaging attacks on teachers and education.

We hope that other unions may be willing to coordinate with us in taking strike action on that day. The UCAC teachers' union in Wales has announced that they will.

The NASUWT meets on 14 February, when they will decide whether to participate.

We need to make clear that this is not just a 'protest' but must be part of an ongoing campaign of action intended to defeat the attacks on teachers' pensions, pay and conditions.

The new NUT parents' leaflet includes the important points:

Michael Gove keeps criticising teachers. Morale is plummeting. Five years after qualifying two in every five teachers are no longer teaching.

Gove is on a mission to cut costs by making teachers work longer hours for less pay and pension. Even more will leave the profession. That's not just bad for teachers, that's bad for children's education.

We must make him think again - we have to build a solid strike on 26 March!
