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.

The teachers’ pay award for 2014 contained little or no comfort and, underneath the headline, some worrying signs for the future.

• From September teachers on the top and bottom of the main and upper pay ranges will receive a 1% pay increase
• This increase will also be applied to the minima and maxima of TLR and SEN pay ranges and leadership bands
• It will be left to schools to decide whether and how to apply this rise to pay points between the maxima and minima

Patrick Murphy: "Why I am asking for your support"

Apr

Patrick Murphy is standing for Deputy General Secretary of the NUT

We need to combine the public campaigning, street stalls and political pressure with a plan for ongoing and escalating industrial action which can win serious improvements. We need precise demands instead of bland calls for Gove to “consider compromise”.

I have proposed, argued and voted for such an approach at every stage in this campaign
