More Than A Score Book Launch

More Than A Score Book Launch

Fancy a free book, and the chance to hear NUT national President, Louise Regan, speak? Manchester NUT section of the NEU will be helping the More Than A Score campaign launch their book “Beyond the exam factory: alternatives to high-stakes testing” on Wednesday 28 February, at 6.30 pm in the Hough End Centre, Chorlton. Further details, and registration link can be found on the eventbrite page below:

Conservative Party Conference demonstration

Austerity has failed – and the consequences can be seen as more and more teachers leave the profession, less young graduates join us, and schools are starved of funding.

Join us on Sunday 01 October to demonstrate at the Conservative Party Conference. This is a national demonstration, backed by the unions and many national organisations. It is part of the People’s Assembly “Take Back Manchester” week of activities.

Hope to see you there – there will be an NEU section on the march for you to join.

EGM Nomination Meeting 28/09/17

Notice of an extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) for all members of the Manchester NUT section of the National Education Union.

The meeting will take place from 5.00 pm – 5.30 pm on Thursday 28 September, at the NUT office (CWU Building), 302 a Barlow Moor Road, Chorlton, M21 8AY.

The purpose of the meeting is the nomination of candidates for the national NUT Vice Presidential election.

The National Education Union is here!

As everyone knows, NUT and the ATL members voted overwhelmingly to form the National Education Union earlier this year, and the new union was officially launched on 01 September. But how will it affect your membership here in Manchester?

It takes time to join together such large organisations, and we’ll have until January 2019 to finish the merger.

In the meantime, there will still be a NUT section (and an ATL section!), operating as normal, but slowly coming together over the next one year and one term.

If you need assistance – use the same numbers you always have, both for the national helpline and the Manchester office.

In schools, reps have been told that they can be joint reps with their ATL colleagues, or in some cases, they may wish to decide between them who takes over the role.

There will be events planned, and invitations to joint meetings and functions, so that we can all get to know each other better – and we will be part of the fourth biggest union in the country.

Welcome back to the new academic year, and to your new union!
