Teachers in Rotherham step up the fight

Issue No. 2237

Teachers in Rotherham stepped up their campaign against compulsory redundancies last week by striking for three days—and leading a 500-strong march in Sheffield against Tory cuts.

The 37 strikers, who are members of NUT union at Rawmarsh Community School, are in their fourth week of action.

Ben Morris, of Sheffield NUT, saluted the revolt in Egypt.

He won applause when he said, “The Tory‑led coalition don’t like what is happening in Egypt—and they don’t want people here to rise up against this brutal, undemocratic regime which is attacking working people in the same way.”
