All these striking teachers should be on the picket lines. Any of them that aren't clearly don't fully support the strike action.....!

I think a lot of people would gladly swap their current pay, pension and conditions to match those of teachers. They are sadly just behind the times, all of the private sector has tightened their belts, cut pay rises and closed their final salary pension schemes ages ago. Even on their current terms they are much better off than most and still they complain. Sorry no sympathy.

Does anyone know what percentage of teachers actually voted and how many of those that did, voted for strike action.
Hardly any of my colleagues voted and only a couple wanted strike action.
This is no more than a false crusade by the union lefties who are desperate for a left wing government.

"stfcdod",

If you are right in what you say then teachers should have the courage to defy the union.

It is obvious that they have neither the courage or inclination to do so.

this is all about how much they can get out of the Government. I hope the Government play them at their own game.

When you say didn't vote, do you mean they didn't vote for a strike or do you mean they didn't vote at all?

TD....whilst I agree with your last sentence it will be interesting to see how many of us have defied the strike call. I think the union will be very dismayed but no doubt will put a positive spin on the figures. Luddites.
