Headteachers in the NAHT union have voted overwhelmingly for strikes over pensions. It’s the first vote for strikes in the union’s 114-year history.

Headteachers voted by more than 75 percent for strikes on a 54 percent turnout.

The union’s general secretary, Russell Hobby, said, ‘The government has tried to pit private versus public sector in its rhetoric, risking a race to the bottom.

“The proposed cuts are unfair, ill thought-through and purely being used to pay for the mistakes of the financial sector.’
