Members of NASUWT-The Teachers’ Union at More House School are taking strike action as part of a series of strikes over threats to sack staff unless they agree to changes to their pensions, making them worse off.

The school in Frensham, Surrey, is forcing teachers to accept changes to their pension contributions under threat of “fire and rehire”.

Staff have been left with no option but to take further strike action to protect their incomes and their pensions.

Dr Patrick Roach, NASUWT General Secretary, said:

“These unjustified plans are an attack on the financial security of hard-working teachers and will leave them worse off just so they can maintain their contracted pension.

“It is not acceptable to force teachers to effectively take a real-terms pay cut under threat of dismissal or an even worse pension if they refuse.

“The Employer must withdraw these proposals and work with us so that further strike action can be avoided.”

Sade Afolabi, NASUWT National Executive Member for Surrey, said:

“To take strike action is the last thing that teachers want to do but by undermining their future financial security they have been left with no choice.

“The employer needs to withdraw these proposals immediately.”
