SIXTH FORM COLLEGE BALLOT
The Executive noted the result of the indicative ballot with 85.5% of members voting YES on a high turnout of 36% and endorsed the recommendation to move to a formal ballot for strike action in support of the campaign. The formal strike ballot will on Monday 8 February with the strike day planned to be Tuesday 15 March. On the day of the strike, the NUT will be organising a national event in London which we want as many members as possible to support. It was agreed to consult reps about whether to organise any further events at regional level in the North, North West and Yorkshire. Reps will be asked to hold meetings and organise street stalls. A video message from Kevin Courtney will be put online and an NUT campaign pack of materials for street stalls will arrive in all colleges around 10 February.
