Hi Folks! For those unaware, the two big teaching unions have joined forces and we (teachers) have been asked by them to take part in "strike action" to make the government realise how much teachers already do above and beyond their remits and that Wilshaw's and Gove's comments and plans are poorly thought out and detrimental to the profession. Completely irrespective of whether you agree with the action or not (don't want this to turn into a slagging match), but what do you folks feel about taking action because your union believe its the right thing to do? Should I be supporting or should I be making up my own mind? I'm neither nor at the moment, I can't see how the action will help the cause, but if I don't support then how can I expect support from the union should I need it? Helpful advice on if I should/shouldn't support would be appreciated! Random flaming about how teachers are lazy/long holidays blah blah blah can go start their own threads... Thanks in advance!
