End of industrial action (maybe)

The AUT annual conference has voted to suspend the ongoing industrial action while a new postal ballot is put to members regarding the new pay offer. I'm very relieved to hear this. While I do, of course, support my union over this, I've been very uncomfortable about the potential effects of the action short of a strike on students, particularly as we're coming up to exam season. Hopefully all this will be settled before that happens and students won't have to suffer because of our action. The corollary to this, of course, is that I don't want to lose whatever support from students that we have, as we would almost inevitably do were the action to continue for much longer.
