Teachers are going on strike because of they will be forced to pay more into their pensions, work for longer and get less out when they retire, their unions have said.
According to the the National Union of Teachers (NUT), thousands of schools will be shut down because:
- Schools will be allowed to set teachers' salaries, according to their performance in the classroom.
- Pay rises are capped at 1%.
- Teachers will have to make higher pension contributions.
- Unions say this will leave their members with a 15% pay cut, as inflation rises beyond 1% and teachers are forced to put more into their pensions each month.
- They also accuse the Government of attacking their working conditions, including allowing schools to have longer school days and longer terms.
