Teachers Set to Strike
Teachers in Nottinghamshire are preparing to strike next month as part of dispute over pay and working conditions.
Members of the two largest teacher unions the NASUWT and the NUT have confirmed the next phase of their jointly coordinated campaign will be to strike on Tuesday, October 1.
The strike action will affect the Yorkshire Midlands region, including West Yorkshire, South Yorkshire, East Yorkshire and Humberside, Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire.
The unions say the strike follows on from the refusal of the Secretary of State to genuinely engage in negotiations to resolve the dispute over adverse changes to teachers’ pay, pensions, working conditions and jobs.
It follows strikes taken in the North West of England inJune in which thousands of teachers took part.
Plans are also in place for a one-day, all-out national strike before the end of the Autumn term.
