My thanks to Merton and Blackburn with Darwen NUT Associations for nominating me at their meetings tonight.
Blackburn with Darwen nominated me for Vice-President alongside Simon Jones while Merton confirmed their promised support at their July meeting tonight, which I attended as a speaker. As usual, Merton had a lively meeting with a high proportion of young teachers present. The discussion after the meeting was a good opportunity to talk to young colleagues about their concerns - including debts, workload, organising in Academies and the problems with implementing 'rarely cover' in practice.
My thanks also to Leeds NUT who have contacted me to confirm that I was also nominated at their General Meeting.
