Teachers stage working conditions protest outside Stoke-on-Trent City Council HQ (video)
A PICKET line was formed outside a council's headquarters this morning as teachers protested over working conditions.
Representatives from teaching union NASUWT joined staff from Penkhull's Mount Education Support Centre as a five-day strike got underway.
The demonstration was held in protest over Stoke-on-Trent City Council's decision to implement a new performance management policy in schools.

Brian Cookson, NASUWT national officer, said: "We regret having to take this action and would welcome the opportunity to sit down with the authority and discuss the policy which it has decided to adopt."
Further strike action by teachers from Mount - which provides support to deaf and visually impaired youngsters - is planned for tomorrow before scheduled walk-outs next week.
