Manchester Teachers’ Association has endorsed Kevin Courtney as our preferred candidate in the election for Deputy General Secretary. We believe Kevin, along with Christine Blower, has led the union from the front, and has produced a campaign capable of strongly influencing not just the Government, but parents and the general public. He is the right person to continue to take the campaign forward.
We urge all Manchester members to vote, and to vote for Kevin.
More details of Kevin’s campaign can be found below
