National Education Union.

Agenda 18th June 2024.pdf

Our next General Meeting is on Tuesday 18th June at 5pm at The Crowndale Centre (Floor 3, Training Room 5). 

Everyone is welcome. Refreshments provided. 

NEU members’ strike action forced the Government to improve its 2023-24 pay offer increasing it to 6.5 per cent, and commit an extra £900 million to properly fund the teacher pay offer and protect support staff jobs. In July 2023, NEU members voted overwhelmingly to accept the offer.

Since then, the NEU has reinstated the Schools Cuts website. Camden has lost £15.6 million in real terms funding since 2010/2011, which is £886 per pupil. This must be addressed.

As revealed and discussed at the NEU National Conference in Bournemouth, 50.3% NEU members engaged with the indicative ballot and the overwhelming majority voted for industrial action. We are proud that 70% of Camden NEU members voted in the indicative ballot.

The Executive are meeting to discuss next steps. As well as focusing on funding campaigning, this will involved a snap poll once the STRB report is published. This term, we will be campaigning with Camden Unison on funding, and plans to hold a meeting regarding funding and pay, with speakers addressing the local community. We want the community to stand with members and demand that the Government takes action to solve the crisis that is threatening to destroy education.
