NAHT 'pursuing strike negotiations' ahead of walkout

Talks are ongoing to prevent a mass walkout on November 30th.

16 November 2011

Members of the National Association of Head Teachers (NAHT) in Northern Ireland (NI) have voted in favour of strike action.

Some 66.7 per cent of those who turned out endorsed taking to the picket line on November 30th and it comes after the England and Wales branches also agreed to protest.

At present, strike negotiations are ongoing between the government and public sector unions in an effort to prevent the walkout from taking place.

Raymond McFeeters, president of NAHT NI, remarked: "Our focus has consistently been on the development and protection of a quality education service for our children and young people."

He added the body - which has 28,500 members across the three countries - is "committed" to securing a pension deal that is fair for workers and safeguards their futures.

The Northern Ireland Public Service Alliance and Unison have recently revealed they are going to demonstrate on November 30th.
