Teachers have taken to Twitter in support of the news that summer strike action has been approved by the National Union of Teachers (NUT).
#NUT2014 so pleased that we have passed the stand up for education motion. Loved the fact that everyone stood up and clapped at the end!
#NUT2014 Strike action isn't certain, it is an OPTION, to be taken if the Govt won't negotiate. The Govt can prevent it, if they want to.
