The two largest teaching unions, NUT and NASUWT, have announced a series of industrial actions in response to their dispute with the government over pay, pensions and workload.
The actions include:
- National rallies across England and Wales in April and May
- National strikes starting in the North West on June 27
If the Education Secretary does not "respond positively to the unions’ demands" there is also a chance of further strike action in the Autumn term, including a one-day nationwide strike.
