A Trade Union Recognition Agreement between the NUT, other unions and E-ACT was signed in 2009. We have also reached agreement on some policies and procedures. Unfortunately that has not always been possible and in some cases E-ACT has decided to implement the policies without agreement. The new E-ACT Employment Manual – imposed from September 2015 without agreement – is a case in point.

Working in E-ACT Academies – February 2017

Employment Policies in E-ACT academies

In September 2015 E-ACT implemented its Employment Manual across all its academies.  The Manual was imposed without agreement with the trade unions.  The unions are seeking changes to the policies contained within the Manual; and any policy revisions resulting from negotiations with E-ACT will be posted on this section of the NUT website as they arise.

Recently agreed E-ACT policies

Following member consultation, the NUT has agreed both the E-ACT Teacher Pay Policy 2016 and the E-ACT Teacher Appraisal Policy 2016. Both policies were implemented with effect from September 2016 and replace any previous pay/appraisal policies from E-ACT.
