NAHT to ballot members over strike

Members of the National Association of Head Teachers are being balloted about strike action.

30 September 2011

The National Association of Head Teachers (NAHT) is balloting its membership to see whether they should pursue strike action.

Individuals have until November 9th to cast their vote and if they back such a move, they could join the 250,000 public sector employees already taking to the picket line on November 30th over changes to the pension system.

Russell Hobby, general secretary of the NAHT - which represents people in England, Wales and Northern Ireland and has over 28,000 members - said he was unimpressed with the attempts made by the Conservative-Liberal Democrat alliance at union bargaining.

"That reasonable heads are pushed to this extreme demonstrates the failure of the government's approach to negotiation," he added.

Individuals in the teaching profession have said that in the future people will be put off joining if pensions are calculated on average salary, rather than end-of-career earnings.

Unite and Unison are among the groups already backing a strike.
