6th Form College Ballot for Action

The NUT is now balloting members on a formal pay offer of 0.75% from September 2010 from the sixth form college employers. Teachers in schools received 2.3% last September as the final part of a three year pay deal. In a letter to members in sixth form colleges, from General Secretary Christine Blower, the details of the offer are explained.

Christine adds, "The NUT National Executive believes, however, that the pay offer is unsatisfactory and should not be accepted at this stage. The NUT is therefore recommending that you vote to reject the offer. The NUT is also consulting you about whether you are prepared to take strike action if necessary. The NUT National Executive recognises that this may at some stage be necessary in pursuit of an acceptable pay increase. The NUT is asking you to indicate that you are willing to take strike action."

The National Executive meets on December 9th when the results of the indicative ballot will be discussed and a decision made whether to accept the offer.
