The Union established a political fund in 2008 following a ballot of members. The Union is not affiliated to a political party and is independent of any political parties.
Members of the NUT have voted in favour of establishing a Political Fund. A copy of the report by the Independent Scrutineer, the Electoral Reform Services, is attached.
