'Members of the NUT need to ask their leadership why they have taken legal action which means that there will be delays in their own members getting the pay rise they deserve.
Nearly 200,000 teachers have applied for this threshold pay increase and now there could be a delay in them getting it. It's the first time in history that a union has blocked an immediate£2,000 pay rise for teachers and access to a higher pay scale.
The government's pay reforms are the best opportunity teachers have had for a generation to radically improve their pay. All the government has asked is that teachers do a good job in return. Clearly, the NUT are unable to except this principle.
