What the delegates say
"We did a survey on my patch and 83 per cent supported a one day strike, nearly two-thirds wanted a boycott and 65 per cent supported extended strike action. And Enfield is not know as a militant branch. Doug McAvoy is wrong when he says there is not enough support for strike action."
Herbert Bukari, Brent, said: "Estelle Morris should never have been invited to speak. The executive should know people are angry out there.
"Heckling is understandable and natural given the strength of feeling. Doug McAvoy was totally wrong to attack delegates for their reaction. What did heexpect? The union stance on the threshold is ridiculous. You are either for something or you are against it."
Jane Rolfe from Leicester said: "If the Government had looked at pay in a proper, professional manner, we could have come up with a way of rewarding teachers that makes sense. That's not what we have got. The vast majority of teachers are opposed to PRP. We can't all be wrong. What we want is boycott."
Mark Krantz from Trafford said: "At last year's conference we were going to the barricades on performance-related pay. Now the union has put up the white flag. The executive is not reflecting the grass roots feeling.
"The Government claims the threshold will attract people to the profession. Do they really think teachers can be bought by two grand to grass on their mates."
