A message about tomorrow's teachers' strike

Christine Blower (General Secretary of the NUT): A message to parents and carers about the strike action on 17 October

The NUT sincerely regrets the disruption that will be caused by strike action on Thursday (17 October) for children and parents. Teachers, however, feel they have no other choice to demonstrate their concerns about the Government’s proposals because Michael Gove:
  • has done nothing to address the crisis of low morale in the teaching profession which threatens the continued provision of high quality education in your child’s school;
  • is making changes to teachers’ pay, pensions and conditions that will make it harder for your child’s school to recruit and retain good teachers;
  • Why teachers are taking strike action pdf has not engaged in negotiations with us to seek to resolve our dispute.
For further information, please download a leaflet on “Why we are striking” and a pamphlet on why ‘It’s time to stand up for education’.
Please email your MP - using these templates if you are a teacher, governor, or parent and tell them why the Government is damaging the education service.
