Today, Saturday April 10th, trade unionists, pensioners, health campaigners and others are marching in London to tell all of the would-be Ministers and MPs that the trade union movement is ready to take action to oppose the'savage' cuts that they are planning.
I will be making sure that other marchers that I speak to know that NUT Conference voted to call for co-ordinated ballots for a 24 hour public sector strike.
I also joined a group of supply teachers marching in London yeterday (April 9th) to protect the jobs and conditions of supply teachers. Organised through the internet, they had come from across England to support each other. The NUT must give full support to their initiatives.
