National Executive discusses threats to pay, jobs and pensions

With Hutton's first report on pensions out this morning, a lot of today' s National Executive meetings were spent discussing the implications of Hutton's Report - and how the NUT should respond.

There were also many other important discussions and reports, in particular on:
  • SATS - how do we maintain our campaign now that the NAHT have voted to withdraw their boycott action?
  • National Conditions under threat - worrying reports from several Local Authorities where centrally-employed staff are being told that there will be NO incremental progression up the pay spine.
  • Cuts - congratulations to centrally-employed NUT members in Islington who are being balloted for action to oppose redundancies and cuts to vital education services
  • Week of Action - both the London demonstrations on October 20th and October 23rd were highlighted in the General Secretary's Report
A summary of Hutton's report is posted separately
