Spreading school strikes to save jobs and stop bullying

Issue No. 2252

The NUT plans to ballot members at Forest Hill school in Lewisham, south London, over a planned compulsory redundancy.

Teachers say the school’s budget deficit results from high repayments on a PFI building.

Adrian Stimpson, an English teacher, has been told that he is the teacher who will be made redundant.

He told Socialist Worker, “We had a big joint union meeting with NUT and NASUWT members last week—around 60 were there out of a teaching staff of between 80 to 90.”

NUT members at St Catherine’s Catholic High School in Halifax, West Yorkshire, were set to strike on Wednesday of this week over three redundancies.
