Teachers are today expected to back fresh walkouts in the summer if progress is not made in resolving a bitter dispute over pay, pensions and conditions.
Delegates at the National Union of Teachers (NUT) annual conference in Brighton are due to debate a priority motion seeking co-ordinated national strike action in the week beginning Monday June 23.
The move comes just weeks after the NUT staged a national walkout, and raises the prospect of widespread disruption to thousands of schools in England and Wales in the summer term.
