Please donít forget to post your vote for the Bradford Education Policy Partnership elections. The ballot paper should have arrived at your home last Tuesday and has to be received back by next Friday 13th.
Jane Rendle is the candidate supported by the NUT.
The EPP effectively replaces the old Council Education Committee. It will set education policy for Bradford, deal with Serco (the company running Bradford's services from September) and be the main channel for raising the concerns of teachers.
There is only one teacher on it, and it is important that it is someone who is experienced, accountable and committed. Those of you who have dealt with Jane through her support for members over School Reorganisation, Primary workload and the Threshold, among many other things, will know that she is all of these things.
The Bradford NUT Office will be open from 10am to 1pm on Monday 23rd and Tuesday 24th July. It will then be closed until 3rd September, although the answer phone will be checked at intervals over the summer, and the Regional Office will remain open.
You may have outstanding issues, possibly because you are supernumerary, or transferring to Serco, or had problems with the threshold. If so please contact us in time for us to deal with it before we close.
Bradford NUT nominated Tim Hales for the Working Party. Tim has been the Leeds NUT Secretary for the last 10 years. Bradfordís Officers know Tim well and have a high regard for his abilities and his belief in democracy. Please consider voting for him.
In a move which indicates what sort of democracy we might get if we are not vigilant, the ballot papers for the election are being sent out in the summer holidays.
For the Conference Working Party
You may be asked to pack boxes ready for the move, but as part of this process you cannot be required to lift anything
heavier than the loads which you would normally expect to carry during a school day, taking into account any condition you may have which makes lifting and carrying particularly difficult.
Remember - furniture and equipment removal are not part of a teacherís job.
