NUT members March for the Alternative

Christine Blower, General Secretary of the National Union of Teachers the largest teachers' union said;

"Thousands of NUT members will be coming from all over the country to join the historic TUC-organised March for the Alternative in London this Saturday, 26 March. We are marching for education, for a good local school for every child and for our pensions.

"The Government is doing nothing to reverse its public sector cuts agenda as this week's budget has clearly shown. This includes the abolition of EMA, cuts to post-16 funding and job losses across the education sector.

"Million's of public sector workers are facing cuts to their pensions, redundancies and pay freezes. The Government's cuts will have long-lasting detrimental implications for our economy and growth.

"It is vital our voices are heard. There are alternatives, a Robin Hood tax for one, would write off a massive amount of this country's debt. There will be no bigger day in the fight against unjustified cuts.
