The Green Party Trade Union group sends its support to NUT strikers at John Roan school (Greenwich). The aims of the John Roan strikers, to restore a reasonable work-life balance and to treat their pupils as more than exam fodder, are totally in line with Green Party policy. This strike for these principled aims, is a positive development. We wish it every success.

many thanks to you and all at the GPTU. We appreciate all messages of support and please pass on our website and twitter details below to all. We really do want to be a source of hope and inspiration to others, as they are to us in their support. We love our school and our students and we see nothing in these proposed changes that will improve the educational climate or the teaching and learning environment in our school. At present we are fighting to get our Head Teacher to acknowledge our elected NUT reps in negotiations. Please keep an eye on our campaign and spread the word.
