Teachers to go on STRIKE with more than 23,000 schools impacted by walk out
Nine out of 10 teachers voted for strike action
Teachers in England and Wales have voted in favour of strikes in a dispute over pay.
Nine out of 10 teacher members of the National Education Union (NEU) voted for strike action and the union passed the 50 per cent ballot turnout required by law.
The union has declared seven days of walkouts in February and March, but it has said any individual school will only be affected by four of the days.
The first day of strikes will be on February 1 and more than 23,000 schools in England and Wales are expected to be affected, the NEU has said.
In England, 90 per cent of NEU teacher members who voted in the ballot backed strikes, with a turnout of 53 per cent.
In Wales, 92 per cent of NEU teacher members who voted in the ballot backed strikes, with a turnout of 58 per cent.
