 November the 30th will see a powerful show of solidarity when striking education  workers rally at the Torch pub in Wembley Park before departing for a rally in Central London. The rally is supported by  seven unions and will hear speeches from Mary Bousted (ATL), Christine Blower (NUT), Terry Hoad (UCU) and Shane Johnschwager (NASUWT). Mary Turner of the GMB has also been invited and the rally and strike is also supported by the National Association of Headteachers and UNISON. The unions cover headteachers,  support staff, lecturers; nursery, primary and secondary teachers and many others.

The rally will commence at 9.30am and is open to all who support the action to safeguard pensions. Strikers and supporters will then leave en masse about 11am to join the central London demonstration in Lincoln Inns Field before marching to the rally at Victoria Gardens.
