Dear NASUWT Inner London Secretaries and Activists

Welcome to our November National Executive Report. It’s the season of Festivals of Light and we wish you all belated Happy Diwali and Bonfire Night - hopefully there were no firework related mishaps!

Best wishes

General Secretary’s Report

Run up to the General Election. We must all use our vote - goes without saying. Across the country the polls show that teachers vote across all political parties.

We all need to be on guard that our rights as employees are not eroded no matter what the outcomes for Brexit or the election are. Eduction is a hot topic in the campaigning - schools and teachers being offered a lot of inducements to win votes - buyer beware!

Your National Executive Members asked questions about fire alarms and lock down procedures in schools, making performance management better and supply teachers right to opt in to the Teachers’ Pension Scheme.

It beholden on National Executive Members to uphold Executive’s unanimous decision to nominate Deputy General Secretary Dr. Patrick Roach to serve as our new General Secretary. Local Associations in our District 23 have nominated Patrick where meetings have been quorate. Nominations close on 9th. December. Patrick is the most qualified candidate and will deserve our wholehearted support.

We hope to see as many of you as possible at the upcoming Greater London Regional Conference 30th. November at the Amba Hotel, Charing Cross. Dr. Patrick Roach is our keynote speaker and there are many interesting workshops. We will also be welcoming David Kitchen our National President to chair the event. Thank you to those who have registered to attend there may be some places left so please contact the Regional Office on 020 7490 6130 if you want to come.

Chris Holland & Kathy Duggan D23 NEMs.
