To help teachers make their way through it, I have broken down the National Union's FAQ document into 'bite-size' chunks - plus a few local additions - and posted it on the Lewisham NUT website.
HAVE A LOOK FOR THESE QUESTIONS and ANSWERS: (UPDATE: Now updated for November 30!)
1 - why is this the right time to act ?
2 - what do we tell the Head about June 30 ?
3 - what if there are only a few NUT members ?
4 - can non-members join the strike ?
5 - can I strike if I didn't vote in the ballot ?
6 - do NUT members HAVE to strike ?
7 - what about supply teachers ?
8 - can I get in trouble for taking strike action ?
9 - Maternity Pay and Strike Action
10 - should schools close to pupils on June 30 ?
11 - Picket Lines
12 - what do I do when I take strike action ?
13 - what if my school has a trip planned for June 30 ?
14 - how much pay will I lose for a day's strike ?
15 - why retiring teachers CAN take strike action
