NUT consults over strike

11th February 2005 at 00:00

The National Union of Teachers is to ask members whether they would also consider other forms of industrial action, or prefer rallies and leafleting.

The consultative survey, beginning on Monday, is a setback for left-wing NUT executive members who wanted to see an immediate formal ballot.
