A Trade Union Recognition Agreement between the NUT, other education and support unions and Focus-Trust was signed in 2013. We enjoy constructive regular dialogue with the trust and meet quarterly under the auspices of the Joint Negotiation and Consultation Committee.
This agreement provides for regular meetings to discuss and negotiate on terms and conditions and issues of concern for members in Focus Trust.
How the NUT is organised in Focus-Trust
In November 2015 we described to members how we plan to transition to a structure in which local union members represent their colleagues in meetings with management and with the support of the NUT Regional Office.
