Brent NUT nomination

Martin was nominated tonight by Brent NUT, together with Hank Roberts, the Brent NUT Secretary, who had already won the backing of his Association.

The meeting was held at Wembley Park Sports Ground where Hank and other 'Tent City' campaigners have been protesting against the threat to build an Academy on the site.

Not surprisingly, the need for the Union to fight the threat of privatisation and the break-up of state education was an important focus of discussion. Other questions centred on the pay dispute with Martin urging the Union to launch the promised ballot for national action without delay.
