Kevin Courtney Deputy General Secretary, National Union of Teachers says:
“While the NUT will not be taking national action on the 10th May we do offer our support to those unions who are. We will be seeking talks with the other unions, including the other teacher unions, who have not signed up to the Governments proposals on pensions with a view to agreeing a co-ordinated campaign to defend our pensions.
Teachers are determined to continue to defend their pension for which there is no evidence to show they are either unaffordable or unsustainable”.
