GUEST,albert BS: Teachers on strike UK (103* d) RE: BS: Teachers on strike UK 24 Apr 08


I am a teacher and a member of the NUT. The strike is an attempt to stop year on year below inflation pay awards.
What concerns me greatly is that for three decades the rich have grown far richer under both New Labour and the Tories. City executives,bankers and other fat cats have grown bloated with massive yearly pay awards [to themselves ] while also ripping off public assests,our pension funds, share dividends and so on.
Its about time they realised and our union leaders realise that the output of our economy is the product of our labour...and that is why all the low paid need to be in unions and in the position to face down the greedy class that has done so well out of the free market and neo liberalism.
Sorry I havent put it well.And the lesson for the children in all this is...join a union!
