We need one teachers’ union – come to the conference on Sat March 1st

Dear colleague

The Government’s refusal to listen to the profession makes it more important than ever that we speak with one voice. We must make ourselves heard.

Professional Unity Conference: Saturday 1 March 2014
10am coffee and registration
11am – 4pm, Pullman Hotel, St Pancras, London

The NUT is organising a conference, ‘How can teachers speak with one voice?’ to explore the possibility of forming one union. Open to all teachers, speakers have been invited from ASCL, ATL, NAHT, NASUWT and UCAC.

Chaired by Warwick Mansell, freelance education journalist, confirmed speakers are:

Mary Bousted, ATL General Secretary by video address
Paul Whiteman, NAHT Director – Representation and Advice
Christine Blower, NUT General Secretary
Dilwyn Roberts-Young, UCAC Deputy General Secretary
Ritva Semi, Special Advisor, OAJ – the trade union of education in Finland
Howard Stevenson, Professor of Educational Leadership and Policy Studies at the University of Nottingham
Join the debate. Click here to register to attend; talk to your teacher colleagues in your workplace about this important campaign and forward this email to those who have not received it. Tell us why you support professional unity. Email: unity@nut.org.uk

As part of the NUT’s CPD offering we still have places available on a special behaviour course in March. For details and to apply go here.

Yours sincerely

CHRISTINE BLOWER
NUT General Secretary
