Public support for November 30 strike

NUT and PCS members took to Lewisham High Street yesterday to give out leaflets and explain our case for 'fair pensions for all'. Far from being criticised by the public, as perhaps some teachers still fear might be the case, the response was, as was the case back in June, overwhelmingly supportive. This time, of course, many of the 'public' will be on strike to defend their pensions too !

Karen Parkinson, Lewisham NUT Young Teachers Officer texted me at the CASE Conference to say "Halved the leaflets, well received by the public, lots on strike with us!"

If you want to read a copy of the parents' leaflet we've produced, go to the Lewisham NUT website:
