But only a 31% turnout!

Ah that’s why I’ve seen a bunch of stuff being pushed on twitter lately about inaccuracies in the school cuts data.

What does it mean, will there be a strike?

I’m sure the government passed laws saying that over 40% of union members must vote in a favour of a strike for it to happen, so probably not.

Why was the ballot not more widely publicised?

Bah, I think NEU is the biggest Union in my school so if they went on strike they’d close the school.

It's. 50% threshold.

No strike on a 30% turnout.
