Which union?

Here is just a taste of what users in the TES online forums are saying this week. Join the discussion at: www.tes.co.ukstaffroom

tashaandmark: I am deciding which union to join. I know most teachers join the NUT but I am tempted by NASUWT. Which union are you in and what are the pros and cons?

frank79:JI'm a member of the PAT... Not sure why. The information pack was green and I like green. The main reason is they don't like striking and I don't either.

Venusbeauticia: Go with the strongest one in your school otherwise you will miss out on meetings everyone goes to and all the gossip! (Another good way to choose is go with the one that gives you your NQT year free and a free pedometer like I did!) * These comments are all personal opinions
