NUT activists meet to push for action
The Local Associations National Action Campaign (LANAC) is meeting on 1 February in Leicester. LANAC was set up in 2012 to organise and argue for a fighting programme for the National Union Of Teachers on pay, workload, pensions and working conditions.
Motions for discussion at the conference - and open to amendment - have been publicised on the LANAC website: www.nutlan.org.uk
It will be a vital conference to discuss the plans to build a clear strategy to defeat Gove's attacks on pay, pensions and conditions.
LANAC convenor Martin Powell-Davies points out on his blog that the meeting will be "right after the next NUT national executive meeting.
"Let's hope that, after that NEC, we will then have a firm date for the next strike action that we can build for.
"However, LANAC has consistently argued that the decisions shouldn't just be about the next action date but should also map out a calendar of action that can show both Michael Gove and our members that we have a serious strategy to defeat these attacks."
