Report From Last Ealing NUT Meeting

Our guest speaker was Sean Morris from the BMA a Junior Doctor from Ealing Hospital explain why they have called three 48 hour strikes. There was complete support from the meeting and an agreement to delivery solidarity during the strikes. There was also an excellent discussion on how to win compliant NUT pay and appraisal polices plus a significant reduction in workload in our schools. Finally there was an excellent debate on conference amendments, in particular around Michael Wilshaw’s comments on the ‘face veil’ and children learning. It was overwhelmingly agreed to condemn his comments.
