1 f you are part of a union you should strike if your union has balloted and that ballot was found in favour. For example if there are 10 staff in your school and 8 strike and the school closes it is unfair if you are part of that union and you still get paid when people are fighting for your rights and lose a days pay. It is different if you opt out of your pension and also if you are in NASUWT but if you are in school on 30th June you should decline any additional responsibilities for anything as simple as having 5 children from a strikers class or taking assembly or covering break duty! Many primary schools are less 'militant' (for want of a better word) than their secondary counterparts. Often primary schools do not have a named rep and therefore ballots can often be missed! I regularly find union post old and unopened littering the staffroom!
