House business

The National Education Union is formed from The National Union of Teachers (NUT) and The Association of Teachers and Lecturers (ATL). Until January 2019, local branches of the NUT and ATL will continue to operate as before and so existing NUT members will continue to be supported by local NUT officers.

New members, who will include all education workers, will join the NEU, but will also be supported by local NUT or ATL officers.

If you need support, in the first instance contact the NUT adviceline on 0203 006 6266.
