I was wondering if anyone had a good reason not to strike? Today I have heard because of the children's interests! - surely they deserve a teacher on decent pay and motivated by love of the job and not just because they can't retire for a few more years. I also heard - Can't afford to - Well if you can't afford to lose 1/365th of your salary this month - around £64 on £25000 and £82 on £30000 then you can't afford to lose the 50% increase in the contributions for the rest of your life. Because my Union is not striking! - Change Unions! Because I am SLT and we have to set an example! - ***! Any other good reason?
