Christine urged trade unionists to support the NUT’s Stand Up for Education manifesto, thousands of copies of which were distributed to the public and at the rally. The NUT’s new inflatable, ‘Hands up for Education’, was a showstopper, drawing widespread attention and admiration.
NUT members talk about some of their reasons for voting yes to both questions in our ballot.
Fighting for education outlines the Stand Up for Education campaign. It covers the attacks we have faced, the victories we have won and the issues we still need to fight for. Please also join the debate in your workplace and respond to our consultation ballot – vote yes, yes in the NUT ballot.
The ballot opened on 26 September 2014 and will close at midday on 22 October.
The ballot hotline has now closed.
It will now not be possible to guarantee despatch and return of voting papers by next Wednesday's closing date.
