West Sussex Teachers Association have nominated Martin and Hank as vice presidents. The WSTA is fairly evenly divided on the pay campaign but members saw it as a debate on when rather than whether to take action and Martin and indeed Hank were seen as people who would fight their corner.

Alison's letter was reproduced as a leaflet for the meeting.
