I am a student teacher-GTP. I have been paying into the Teachers Pension Scheme all year, but the email I have received from my union says because I am a student and have not paid into TPS and was not balloted, it means I am unable to take strike action. I have also read that schools have been informed of the number of teachers balloted so cannot just join in with strike action as they should know how many people are striking. Is this correct? Very confused!
