Lewes Eastbourne and Wealden NEU (NUT Section) AGM 2018
Tuesday 27th February 5pm Elephant and Castle Pub Lewes
Guest Speaker: Kevin Courtney, General Secretary
We will be discussing the pay campaign in East Sussex, where our pay is falling behind other authorities. Kevin will be putting this into the context of the union’s national pay and other campaign work.
We will also be electing our officers for the year and also will be deciding on any amendments for National Conference.
All members and reps are welcome at the Annual General Meeting, travel costs are covered and a meal provided. We can also cover childcare costs.
East Sussex Pay Campaign
This year for the first time East Sussex teachers’ pay has not kept up with colleagues in many other local authorities.
We have been carrying out consultative ballots in a number of East Sussex schools to gauge support for the campaign to push for the full national pay increase.
These ballots so far have exceeded expectations and have come back with overwhelming or unanimous yes votes on a very high turnout of members.
We are still looking for schools to hold meetings about this in so please do get in touch if you would like a local officer to come in and talk to members about the pay situation.
