News and Support from The NASUWT
Speaking after the rally in Liverpool on the day of strike action in schools across the North West, Chris Keates, General Secretary of the NASUWT, the largest teachers’ union, said:
“The support for the action across the North West has been overwhelming.
“Congratulations to all the teachers who showed such great courage and determination to stand up for standards.
“But this strike action should not have been necessary and could have been avoided if the Secretary of State was prepared to listen to the voice of teachers who are raising deep concerns, not only on behalf of the profession, but on behalf of our children and young people.”
The Secretary of State should understand that thousands of teachers across the regions are ready to continue the action solidly started by colleagues in the North West. He has the solution. Just listen.
