FOR THOSE AT SCHOOLS WITHOUT SCHOOL REPS:

The amalgamation of NUT and ATL in the new National Education Union gives teachers and education colleagues a fabulous opportunity to campaign in their schools against the less appealing aspects of our great jobs.
Nationally the NEU can talk to education ministers & the DfE and create policy, Regionally and Locally we can support members – but it is in YOUR schools, where YOUand fellow members have unique knowledge of the issues in YOUR school, academy or MAT, where YOU can make a real difference.
Some schools treated their staff fantastically. Does YOURS?
By effectively organising we can persuade the leadership of ALL schools in the area to provide a better working experience for teachers and co-workers.
YOUR school currently has NO School Rep or Reps. No ear on the ground, no-one recruiting or maintaining an NEU noticeboard.
Please attend one of the two Organising/Training Meetings that I am holding over the next couple of weeks. No obligation! If you attend but don’t want to be a Rep you won’t be forced/coerced into it. Just come along, learn and discuss.
Next Wednesday 27 September – Harlow Study Centre – 4.15 to 6pm
Thursday 5 October – White Bridge Primary, Loughton – 4.15 to 6pm.
If there are issues at your school YOU need to be there.
RSVP
All the very best
