NASUWT members took to the streets of the capital and unfurled a ‘sea of blue’ to call for a new deal for teachers and other working people.
The NASUWT was strongly represented at a march organised by the TUC to demand action by the Government on funding for public services, pay, conditions and workplace rights, with hundreds of members marching through Westminster with their NASUWT banners, flags and balloons held high.
NASUWT Deputy General Secretary Dr Patrick Roach addressed a rally in Hyde Park following the march and told the crowds that it is time for the Government to put working people first.
He said: “I don’t need to tell the teachers here today of the destructive impact of eight years of real terms pay cuts and pay discrimination that has led to the worst teacher recruitment and retention crisis since the second world war.
“And you don’t need me to tell you that if our schools don’t have enough teachers, it’s our children’s education that suffers
“I don’t need to tell you all of this because we all know the truth; we have all the arguments; so now it’s time for us to use those arguments to secure a new deal for working people.”
