How will industrial action impact on teachers?
The NUT has just announced that 82% of its members have voted in favour of strike action. Much of the media coverage is bound to focus on how this will impact on pupils. However, LKMco’s research on teachers’ perceptions of unions suggests it will also have a big impact on teachers.
In other cases, teachers were frustrated by what they saw as union ‘intransigence’ and ‘militancy’ and a quarter (24%) therefore developed more negative views. Amongst NUT and NASUWT members this figure was 21%.
