Striko! icWales:

Wales’ biggest teaching union yesterday threatened strike action over pay.

The National Union of Teachers Cymru said members would be balloted if ministers award no more than the 2% cap being suggested by Prime Minister Gordon Brown.

Mr Brown has called for the 2% ceiling on public sector pay increases “to keep inflation under control”. But the NUT, NASUWT and Welsh language teaching union UCAC all said 2% was effectively a pay cut.
