Nov

In just a fortnight, the SAIL campaign to Stop Academies In Lewisham is already building strength.

Following a first public meeting (see previous post), SAIL was then launched at a follow-up meeting bringing together parents, campaigners, teaching and support staff unions.

A SAIL facebook group has been set up to build the campaign and helped organise support for a Lobby of Lewisham Council last night. See: https://m.facebook.com/StopAcademiesinLewisham

Model motions for NUT Conference 2015

Oct
26

Attached are motions that have been drafted by supporters of LANAC from across a range of NUT Associations to be considered for submision for NUT Conference 2015 - and largely as discussed at the LANAC Steering committee earlier this month.

Please do see if you can have some of these adopted at your General Meeting after half-term.

If any Association feels that they needed any amendment before being agreed, do let LANAC know so that we can highlight any different wording that has been arrived at.

Oct
04

With confirmation coming through that the strike on October 14 is going ahead, the National NUT will be issuing advice on what NUT members can do (unfortunately, that will not include calling strike action as LANAC supporting Executive members were in a minority in the debate discussing this in September).

LANAC Bulletin for the July 10 strike

Jul
08

Om July 10, nearly two million public sector workers will be taking strike action, among them the 300,000-plus members of the NUT. While our support staff and other local government brothers and sisters are fighting for a decent pay rise in place of the paltry 1% offered by their employers, we are continuing to demand fair pensions, national pay entitlements for all and real measures to reduce workload.

Fred Jarvis continues his lifetimes work.

Jun
28

Ex- General Secretary of the NUT, Fred Jarvis, has once again launched an attack on the NUT, this time in order to promote his new book. In an article in the Times on June 28th Jarvis accuses 'the far left' of plotting to take over the NUT and singles out LANAC for particular attention. For people like Fred the left can never just stand for election. Instead they have to be described as 'plotting to take over the union'. The next time NUT conference delegates are asked to applaud this man we should remember the role he has actually played and continues to play in the labour movement.
