NUT Lobby of Supply Agencies

Congratulations to all those who took part in the seven lobbies of supply teaching agencies that took place across the country on June 1st. Several members joined Leicester and Leicestershire NUT Supply Teachers Organisers, Simon Robinson and Helena Tendall, in lobbying five supply agencies during the half term break. The agencies were very reluctant to speak to the NUT, but Simon and Helena were interviewed by BBC Radio Leicester and did a fantastic job of highlighting the problems facing supply teachers. They have arranged to meet Assistant Mayor Sarah Russell to discuss the setting up of a Local Authority Supply Teachers' Register.
