A mass lobby of Parliament has renewed pressure on the Department for Education to publish the findings of the STRB pay review and to re-open negotiations over teachers’ pay.

It comes after the National Education Union (NEU) confirmed its intention to go-ahead with two further strikes this term – on July 5 and 7.

The NEU as well as the Association of School and College Leaders (ASCL), National Association of Head Teachers (NAHT), and NASUWT are in on-going dispute with the government over teachers’ pay and the real-terms cuts to education funding seen since 2010.

All four unions are currently balloting their members for strike action from September and have pledged to coordinate such action should it take place.

The lobby took place on Tuesday (June 20) and involved members from ASCL, NAHT, NEU as well as the National Governance Association and UNISON.
