NUT Strike March 26th 2014

Hackney Support the NUT March 26th .. Picket Lines etc
“Support NUT Strike on 26th March
Dear comrades,
As you may know the NUT is taking national strike action on 26th March. We are fighting in defence of our pay, pension and conditions of service, in the context of a concerted attack by the coalition government and Michael Gove on the education service in this country. Gove’s wants to hand over our schools to the private sector, while rationing education more and more through his education ‘reforms’.

We see out fight as part of the larger fight to defend jobs and services against a government that is only interested in looking after the rich and greedy. Please support us, and join our picket lines:

There will be pickets from 7.30 onwards at:
B6, Lea Bridge roundabout
Clapton Academy
Stoke Newington School
And elsewhere

Members from Urswick school will be leafleting around the town hall”
