Thanks for your support!
A BIG THANK YOU to everyone who has supported me. Your help has made sure that I HAVE BEEN ELECTED onto the NUT National Executive.
The results for the Inner London seats (two places to be filled) were:
ALEX KENNY 1100 (elected)
MARTIN POWELL-DAVIES 857 (elected)
Sara Tomlinson 682
This victory comes despite (as usual!), my candidature not receiving the backing of the STA and CDFU left groups within the Union. I hope that the result will remind others on the Left within the Executive that many classroom teachers are frustrated at the Union's failure to take firm action to protect teachers from the constant pressures we face.
The platform that I stood on was clear - for a national ballot on workload and for united action to fight cuts to pay, jobs and pensions. I hope that my election can help make sure that we can build such a program of action - to defend teachers and education.
