Open Statement to Members of the Newham NUT Section of the National Education Union [NEU]

As you will see the outcome of the NTA 2017 Local Elections means that I have not been re-elected as your Divisional Secretary & Secretary Newham Teachers Panel. Thus, my current office in both posts ceases as of 6th February 2018. I apologise to members that I have not continued to demonstrate the confidence you have previously have shown in me in re-electing me to these posts annually since 1992. It has been a great privilege for me to represent you over those years. My personal material circumstances will change significantly, and I have no choice but to resign the delegate positions [NUT London Regional Council and Delegate to NUT Annual Conference] to which you have re-elected me as I shall now be unable to carry out those responsibilities to effectively represent you.

Thus, my personal involvement in the affairs of the Association will cease as of 6th February 2018. I wish to emphasise that in making this statement I do so with no personal regrets and with the continuing respect for the membership I have had the honour to represent over the past 25 years. I wish the new leadership you have chosen to elect all the best for the future and hope they are able to live up to your expectations as I hope I have previously done.

Peter Smith

NTA Divisional Secretary
[February 1992 to February 2018]
