Parliament lobbied by teachers about pay and pensions
The National Union of Teachers, one of the two biggest classroom unions, has said that hundreds had attended an event to highlight their concerns about changes to their pay, pensions and working conditions.
 
The NUT lobby was part of the union's Stand up for Education Campaign, which has included national and regional strikes and came as a government review recommended a 1% pay rise for teachers from September.
 
The Education Secretary, Michael Gove, says he intends to accept the review's recommendations in full.
 
However, NUT general secretary Christine Blower called the 1% rise "totally inadequate". NASUWT general secretary Christine Keates said it would leave all teachers "worse off".
 
Lavinia Newman, Founder of ABDS and a qualified Mediator comments:
“The unions have called off their strike for June, but it could be recalled for July because of their claims of an excessive workload as well as changes to teachers' pensions and the introduction of performance-related pay, which have contributed to the dispute.”
 
Ms Blower said "Teacher morale is at an all-time low, with many working in excess of 60 hours a week for uncertain pay and worsening pensions".
 
The union says it lobbied more than 100 MPs including shadow education secretary Tristram Hunt.
