Stand up for Education – Stand up for Teachers
The National Union of Teachers has confirmed the next stages of its campaign to Stand up for Education and the teaching profession. The Union will be engaging with parents and the general public, pressuring politicians and, if significant progress is not made in talks with Government, the Union will be taking strike action and seeking to coordinate with other unions in late June, including with NASUWT.
