NUT: No alternative to teachers strike

Thousands of teachers have backed a programme of widespread strikes in England and Wales over changes to their pensions.

Members of the National Union of Teachers (NUT) and the Associations of Teachers and Lecturers are expected to walk out on 30 June.

Christine Blower, general secretary of the NUT, said that the government's attack on public sector pensions left NUT members with no alternative but to strike.
