    I'm not suggesting for a second that any of you guys don't care about the welfare of your schools, that's not my point. I'm being a martyr and reminding the SMT here what happens when the let the NM take a month-long holiday, three weeks of which are in schoolterm, and don't provide backup.

    (so for once I'm being selfish in a respect)

    I would've voted 'no' had I been able to, so it seems daft to me to go against my beliefs and stand out there in the cold for something that I genuinely believe is only going to be put back - the rule of 85 will be removed, just maybe not now (because of the strikes). By the time I've clocked up anything near 85 years (if I last that long in Local Gov employment), I truely believe that the RO85 will be long gone.

    But kudos to all you guys striking, indeed.

    You commented too soon for me to remove my comment IG. I thought I wasn't being helpful there.

    Re: so whos striking then

    atl no striking advice here http://www.atl.org.uk/atl_en/help/A_...government.asp

    yes people are correct cant use annual leave and if call in sick it isup to head to decide if on strike or not...

    Reason i decided to strike....

    mainly as i am rep and

    as caretaker was (gmb) striking

    so me and one other unsion member decided that would support him in this...

    other unions members decided not to which is fine this is my view is personnel choice...

    our school closed to kids because of threat of pickerting (ironic not us as our members decided not to) but from staff from upper schools....

    anyway

    as sais this is personnel choice and no one should be said is wrong for not striking

    Agreed over personal choice. Just putting straight bogus reasoning as such, even though I believe said in all innocence.

    Was supposed to be on strike today but the technician brought the whole network down....don't ask!

    So had to go in for a couple of hours as all teachers panicking about the iminent arrival of OFSTED.
