Please pass on our solidarity to teachers at STEM who have decided to take strike action against what sounds like an outrageous contract. We ourselves have been in dispute with our Governing Body over the LA pay policy and voted last Monday to escalate our action to strike action to fight for a fair and transparent policy. We have been informed today that the Local Authority have agreed to change the pay policy in line with the NUT/NASUWT recommendations. We hope our victory gives further confidence to the teachers at STEM that unity and determination can win and that strike action is a vital weapon in protecting teachers conditions and pay.

 If there is any further practical support we can offer, please contact us and we will do our best.
