Gove Tells Unions It's Time To Talk.

Hot on the heels of recent strike action, Michael Gove has told tbg that he will talk to the unions involved.

In an exclusive interview with tbg in Portsmouth last Friday Mr Gove said - "I know that no one takes the decision to strike lightly but I do think we are in a position to talk."

"We can make sure that any lingering concerns can be fairly addressed so that we can make sure that every teacher does what they want to do which is concentrate on helping children."

"I am always happy to talk to all unions all the time but I want to make sure that all teachers are treated fairly and that there's no reward for militancy."
