National Education Union General Secretary Kevin Courtney reports:

Indicative ballot of NEU members at Pimlico Academy sees 93 per cent voting to move to a formal ballot on industrial action.

81 voted yes, 2 voted no; NEU has 87 eligible members at school.

Formal ballot was authorised yesterday and takes place next week.

The workers' central grievances are authoritarian, bullying management; a failure to respond to accusations of racism and safeguarding concerns; a refusal to engage with the union; and excessive workload. The wider context is the management's conservative, racist agenda and crackdown on students protesting against it.
