Union members in teaching jobs
have baulked at government plans to introduce regional pay for UK public sector workers.
Indeed, the National Union of Teachers (NUT), one of the biggest teaching unions, has confirmed that is [[[it]]] will challenge attempts by the coalition to introduce the controversial new measure.
The decision to strike was taken at the union's annual conference in Torquay.
Kevin Courtney, NUT deputy general secretary, argued that the teaching profession should have national pay rates.
"Pay rates in different parts of the country would be very bad for the economy," he commented.
"This is about our preparation for a campaign if the government does go down this route."
The NUT announced that it will work in unison with other teaching unions to ensure that the government does not succeed in pushing through the controversial measures.
Last year, thousands of people in education jobs
staged strike action at schools around the country.
