At its annual conference in Brighton, the NAHT’s National Executive unanimously agreed to put the following motion before conference this Sunday, 1 May.
"Conference calls upon National Executive to take all action necessary to defend pensions up to and including balloting on industrial action, in opposition to the changes proposed by the Hutton enquiry, as they will reduce existing; and worsen future retirement benefits for the teaching profession and the public sector as a whole. NAHT believes that the proposed changes will seriously damage motivation and morale, exacerbating the already serious problems of recruitment and retention of school leaders."
General Secretary of the NAHT, Russell Hobby, said: "There was real anger today among executive members. They rightly see the proposals as an attack on the fair rewards from a lifetime of public service. This is going to get serious."
