Rights and conditions

When other unions are taking industrial action and ATL is not

Members can find themselves in a difficult position in schools or colleges where colleagues are taking industrial action and they are not. However, the legal position in these circumstances is clear: industrial action by a union member is unlawful if it is not preceded by the formal notification, balloting and authorisation process.
