Teachers across Devon set to strike in national protest over pay and conditions
Teachers in Exeter are set to strike over pay, pensions and working conditions.
The industrial action will start in the summer term, according to the National Union of Teachers (NUT) and NASUWT.
They have already been taking part in industrial action short of striking in recent months.
Initially strikes will take place on June 27 in the north-west of the country but the action spreads across the country including a one day national strike before the end of the autumn term.

A South West NUT spokesman said: "The attacks on pay and pensions in combination with increasing workload are making teaching an unsustainable option for many. The resolution to all the aspects of our dispute with the secretary of state is in his hands. He can respond positively engage with us to seek a way forward."
A sopeksman for the Department for Education said: "We are very disappointed that the NUT and NASUWT have decided to take strike action, which less than a quarter of teachers actually voted for."
