Derek McMillan Posted January 14, 2004 Share Posted January 14, 2004 One of the candidates seeking nomination for the General Secretary of the NUT is Martin Powell-Davies of Lewisham. I must confess a personal interest - I contributed to his manifesto by suggesting he move an apostrophe Part of Lewisham's leaflet reads: "As both Association Secretary and as a classroom teacher, Martin is in touch with the everyday pressures confronting teachers – and he pledges to remain so. He would remain on the pay of a classroom teacher, using the rest of the present General Secretary salary (of over £100,000) to support education and trade union campaigns. He will make it a priority to visit schools and Union meetings." The whole thing is online on the Socialist Party teachers webpage as we are rather proud to have Martin as one of our members. A change in leadership in the NUT is inevitable and Martin could make it a real change. Any opinions? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
