Teachers march through Sheffield in protest at working conditions

Have your say

TEACHERS from across South Yorkshire marched through Sheffield yesterday in protest at their pay, pensions and working conditions.

They then held a rally in Barkers Pool aimed at highlighting their plight.

The teachers claim morale is at rock bottom because of the public sector pay freeze, increased pension contributions and plans to make them work until they are 68.

Yesterday’s demonstration was organised by the NUT and NUSAWT unions, with teachers taking part saying they are prepared to take industrial action to make their feelings known.
