Urgent Appeal For Stewards:
We wish to identify six colleagues from your association who can act as stewards for the day – this will help us make sure we have a well organised march and rally and are able to deal with any media scrum should any celebrities turn up. Please inform the NTA President.
Appeal by Kevin Courtney, Acting NUT General Secretary:
Help your MP get the message – enough is enough
Earlier this week I wrote to all MPs. The NUT’s message explained the harm that funding cuts are having in schools, the threat to teachers’ pay and conditions and why the Union is standing up for education by balloting for industrial action.
This message will have much more of an impact if MPs now hear from lots of their constituents reinforcing the points the NUT has raised nationally.
We have provided a template email, which you can personalise. It will only take you a few minutes to email your MP.
If you haven’t already done so, please do use your vote in the NUT’s ballot and vote YES for education, your profession and your pay and conditions.
The NTA ballot papers relating to the nomination of the NUT General Secretary were processed. The majority of NTA members who voted wished to nominate a candidate for the new NUT General Secretary. The NTA’s nomination is Kevin Courtney. The nomination papers were sent to the NUT before the deadline.
The NUT announced that 2 candidates have been nominated to stand for election. They are Kevin Courtney & Beth Davies
