The next meeting is:
It would be great to see as many reps as possible (if you can’t come, try and get another NEU member to come in your place; we want as many active NEU members in the East Riding as possible) – feel free to stay after for a chat and a bite to eat. Free lunch is provided for all attendees.

HEALTH AND SAFETY
Do you have concerns about health & safety issues at work? Are the builders moving in? Does the roof leak? When was the last health and safety inspection in your school? Is everyone’s health suffering? Do you feel safe at work? If you need help with any or all of these issues help is only an email away:
For advice in the first instance contact
Worried about the safety of parts of your school?

There are also model Health and Safety policies for reps in Academy chains
and stand alone Academies on the related links section of the NEU Academies page
ACADEMIES IN EAST YORKSHIRE
The NEU is fundamentally opposed to Academies. It inevitably leads to the further privatisation of education and takes schools further out of local democratic control. However where academies exist we are committed to continuing to protect our members and cooperate in providing a first rate education service for all.
What we seek is an open, transparent, public consultation process for any school taking the slippery path to Academy status. We would welcome a public debate in our area where these issues could be discussed in a public forum.
For more information there are documents about funding, pay and conditions and Academies in general on the NEU campaigns page ‘Academies’
Pensions, savings, home insurance, ISAs and much more besides.
Members can contact Teachers Assurance, an NUT company, for free from a landline on 0800 056 0563. There is also a web chat service on their website
www.teachersassurance.co.uk so there’s always a friendly person to talk to be it over the phone or online.
