The NUT Executive has just voted unanimously that "discontinuous strike action should commence with a day's action on Thursday, 30 June 2011".
As NUT General Secretary, Christine Blower, declared, our ballot result had been a "spectacular success". The ATL are also delighted with the result of their first-ever national strike ballot.
The Executive paid tribute to everyone who has worked so hard to achieve this overwhelming majority for action. We now need to work just as hard to make sure that June 30 is a huge show of united union strength and clear opposition to the proposed robbery of our pensions.
