CCHQ Go On Union Sports Attack

Following Guido’s story yesterday about the unions restricting any chance of expanding school sports, CCHQ have joined in the fun:

Orders from the NASUWT to a membership which totals over 300,000 states that ‘Members should refuse to attend any meetings and activities outside school session times which are not on the school calendar and which are not within directed time.’ Meanwhile, the NUT is balloting its members to join the NASUWT in a ‘work to rule’. 

Conservative MP Damian Hinds, who sits on the Education Select Committee, commented:

“It is utterly hypocritical for the unions to blame the government for a lack of sport in school at the same time as ordering their members not to help with activities outside of school hours. Following the huge success of the Olympics, the last thing we want is to go back to a time when school sport was crippled by militant union leaders embarking on a damaging and irresponsible work to rule. Ed Miliband and Stephen Twigg must condemn their union allies for standing in the way of children who want to take part in sport after school. If everyone in Team GB worked to rule like the NASUWT we would have fewer medals than Australia.”

Since the militant unions blinked over the Olympic strikes, there seems to be an upping of aggression against them. Good.
