*This year there have been twice as many motions submitted as usual. This is good for democracy. However many will not get enough NEU District votes get on to the conference agenda. We need to be strategic in supporting motions that might not make it, even though we did not submit them. Some motions are also highly likely to get on the agenda.

Therefore I am proposing that we keep 5 of the 6 Ealing submitted; SATs (Motion 9), SEND (Motion 6), Workplace representatives (motion 83), Sexism & online misogyny (motion 72), Palestine (motion 107). And replace Working Conditions in Adverse Heat (motion 10) with Educating for Peace (motion 110). Here are all the submitted Conference Motions –> Motions for Priority Voting 2024

Any alternative set of motions to be prioritise must be with me before Thursday 1st Feb
