I have struck.

6°C, clear sky, winds W.

Today, I’m on strike for the first time in my life. The big multi-union campaign is against the government breaking their side of the Teachers’ Pensions agreement. They are in breach of contract, so most teachers are on strike. I voted Yes mainly because of other campaigns listed on the ballot paper, most notably- workload.

The bottom line is that if I want union support then I must, by obligation, support them. I will need this support quite soon.
