The NASUWT is proposing to ballot its members for local action over pupils attending teachers' interviews. Other issues they could consider for industrial action?

- Lack of space in school car parks.

- Dirty cups in the staffroom sink.

- Malfunctioning photocopiers.

- Squeaky corridor floors.

- Noisy bells.

- Draughty staffrooms.

- Abolishing Sats and league tables.

No, scrap the last one, it might make the NASUWT look like an effective trade union.
