Local Associations National Action Conference
on Saturday 16 June 2012
11.00 – 15.30
at the Quaker Meeting House 22 School Lane Liverpool L1 3BT
The venue is in Liverpool City Centre; just a 5 min walk from Liverpool Lime Street Station
Registration 10.30 Conference 11.00 –15.30
Past: For over a year NUT members and activists have been engaged in one of the most critical industrial disputes in the Union’s history- to defend our ability to retire at a reasonable age from one of the most stressful jobs there is on a decent pension. After two impressive days of strike action co-ordinated with other public sector unions on June 30th and November 30th this campaign has lost momentum. There will be national action from some unions on May 10th but, sadly, the NUT will not be taking part.
Where Next in the Pensions Dispute?
Future: The network of local NUT divisions and associations organising this conference want to rebuild the momentum we had earlier in the year. We want to give activists the chance to consider whether and how we can put the NUT back in the lead of the pensions’ dispute. We are inviting all associations and divisions to support the conference and to send delegates to take part in the discussion.
The day will be structured to allow an update on where we are in the campaign, an opportunity to consider practical means of rebuilding support for action amongst both members and the Union structures and of working jointly with other Unions in schools, with a final session looking at the future of campaigns and the local associations network.
