New Zealand's primary and secondary teachers, though they are in separate unions,  have voted to conduct a joint one-day strike on May 29.  It will likely be one of the largest strikes in New Zealand's history.

In what seems to be a new development in the global North, educators across grade levels, organized in separate unions, are conducting joint national strike action, to demand sustainable, supportive conditions for students and teachers.  As national governments play a huge role in setting educational policy and funding schools, education workers are realizing they need to address their demands to their governments and acting together keeps the government from pitting one sector against the other.
