The National Association of Head Teachers is to ballot over strike action.

03 May 2011

The National Association of Head Teachers (NAHT) is set to hold an emergency ballot over the possibility of strike action.

At the organisation's annual conference in Brighton last week, the executive of the group unanimously agreed to put a motion before its members on Sunday May 1st.

"Conference calls upon National Executive to take all action necessary to defend pensions up to and including balloting on industrial action," said a statement from the NAHT.

The organisation went on to state that changes outlined in the Hutton enquiry will have a severely negative effect on the existing and future benefits for those in the industry, as well as the public sector in general.

It claimed these alterations have the potential to exacerbate the problems of recruitment and retention among head teachers.

Russell Hobby, general secretary of the union, warned that: "This is going to get serious".

This comes after members of the Association of Teachers and Lecturers voted "overwhelmingly" in favour of strike action.
