Headteachers in huge strike vote

Headteachers have answered a vote to strike with an overwhelming "yes" and are now likely to join millions of other public sector workers in a day of industrial action against Government cuts on November 30.

The vote by the National Association of Head Teachers represents the first time the union has agreed to strike in its 114-year history.

The Government is keen for public sector staff members to work for longer, pay in more money to their pension pots and receive less back when they retire, the union said.

Three-quarters of head teachers voted to strike (75.8 per cent), although union leaders have yet to officially call out association members.

General secretary Russell Hobby said the union executive will consider what the next move ought to be.
