Nottinghamshire representatives of the National Educational Union show their agreement towards strike action in England and Wales.
They are preparing for their first national strike day on 1 February.
The NEU says individual schools will be affected for a maximum of four days. Government guidance says schools should stay open if possible.
A Nottingham City representative of NEU East Midlands said: “We’re stealing a detrimental impact on the young peoples futures by the consistent pay cuts and lack of funding.”

Mary Bousted, general secretary of the NEU, said: “We’re no further forward in resolving the dispute.
“It’s not something we want to do at all, but ministers have to now engage seriously and have to begin negotiating.”
A Nottinghamshire representative for NEU East Midlands said: “We are taking away from our children’s education and we are making it harder for our teaching staff and educational staff to support children properly.”
