The document guides associations and divisions on the use of and application to the Political Fund. It sets out when the Political Fund must be used and where general funds may be used outside the context of elections. An application form is provided for use by associations and divisions.
The term “political fund” has a special meaning in the law which relates to unions. It is not just a fund out of which a union pays for political campaigns and activity. These can be paid for, as they are paid for by the NUT campaigning for teachers and education, out of ordinary funds.
