NUT rejects pension deal.

TEACHERS' leaders yesterday refused to sign up to the Government's final offer on pensions, dealing another blow to hopes that the bitter dispute could soon be resolved.

The NASUWT said it reserved the union's position, claiming that the Department for Education's process of trying to reach a deal had been "completely unsatisfactory".

The move followed a decision by Unite to reject the proposed deal for health workers, and a decision by the British Medical Association to survey around 130,000 doctors and medical students on the Government's final offer, raising the prospect of their first industrial action ballot for over 30 years.
