North Westminster school

Issue No. 1958

Furious members of the NUT teaching union at North Westminster School, west London, voted for strike action last week and won an immediate withdrawal of proposals to relocate them.

The same majority called for a strike ballot. This was not required as the employer immediately backed off.
