Summer school strikes; BRITAIN IN BRIEF.

TEACHERS are gearing up for a fresh round of strikes this summer in a their row over pay, pensions and conditions.

Members of the NUT could stage walkouts at the end of June if their dispute is not resolved.

The union is due to debate a priority motion at their conference in Brighton, which seeks co-ordinated strike action in the week beginning June 23, if "significant progress" is not made in ongoing talks.

The move comes weeks after the NUT staged a walkout, and raises the prospect of disruption to thousands of schools.

The resolution declares the NUT's walkout last month was a success, and calls on the union to continue its Stand Up For Education campaign.
