The 150,000-strong Association of Teachers and Lecturers is planning a series of strikes this summer in protest at plans to cut pensions.

The union will debate a motion calling for strike action at its annual conference in Liverpool next Tuesday. If passed, it may conduct a ballot over strike action.

Teachers are incensed at plans which would see their pension contributions rise by an average of about £100 a month.
