June's election for NUT General Secretary WILL be contested

I am pleased to be able to announce that, following news of my nomination being agreed by quorate meetings of Bolton, Doncaster, Liverpool and Warwickshire NUT Associations this week, I have now received at least the ten nominations required to be able to stand as a candidate in the General Secretary election this June.

This news confirms that a contested election will now take place between myself and Christine Blower, the existing NUT General Secretary.

So far, according to my records, I have received nominations from 12 NUT Associations, with a good chance that several more may yet be added before the final deadline of April 30. 

UPDATE: The final list of confirmed nominations provided by NUT HQ is:
  • Leeds
  • Doncaster
  • Blackpool
  • Bolton
  • Cheshire West
  • Liverpool
  • Central Nottinghamshire
  • Nottinghamshire (South)
  • City of Leicester
  • Warwickshire
  • Central Bedfordshire
  • Lewes, Eastbourne & Wealden
  • Greenwich
  • Lewisham
  • East London
  • Bristol
  • Brighton & Hove
