NAHT to ballot members ahead of strike action

Strike negotiations may be required by the National Association of Head Teachers.

22 September 2011

Union bargaining may be needed to prevent members of the National Association of Head Teachers (NAHT) taking to the picket line.

This is because the NAHT has confirmed it is going to ballot its association about the possibility of strike action.

Their anger is centred around cuts to pensions and if people decide to protest, it will be the first time in the union's 114-year history that it will have done so.

Russell Hobby, general secretary of the NAHT - which represents over 28,500 people in England, Wales and Northern Ireland - noted the decision to ballot staff has been taken with "great reluctance".

"Like everyone else, teachers have paid the price for the recession in taxes and pay cuts. They are now also being taxed to pay for the mistakes of others," he added.

Mr Hobby continued by saying that the profession faces being devalued if proposed cuts to the retirement package are made.
