Are you remaining as rep this academic year? If not, please ensure that a new rep is elected so that we can continue to send local information to a person in your setting. Let us know who it is!
If you are the rep, please recruit new members. These could be support staff, NQTs, staff new to the school or those training on the job i.e. SCITT, Teach First. Also, please check that your membership lists are up to date where staff have moved on or joined your workplace.
Finally, thank you for all your help and support over the past twelve months. Being NEU rep is not always easy, but it is a vital part of how the union operates. The grassroots membership and reps are the life blood of the union.
