Thanks to the help from supporting NUT Associations and other campaign supporters, and despite only a limited campaign budget, my campaign leaflet has been distributed to schools in many different parts of England and Wales - ahead of the ballot papers arriving at members' homes next week.
As we wait for the special meeting of the NUT National Executive on Friday, I think it's a good moment to highlight one paragraph that I included to make clear where I stand:
"We have to learn lessons.
Pulling back from action on pensions in 2012 encouraged Michael Gove to
attack our pay in 2013. Any further hesitation will invite worse attacks
on our conditions in 2014".
