Stop The BNP
The NASUWT is committed to tackling racism, fascism and other forms of bigotry in the workplace and the wider society. The NASUWT works with a number of anti-racist organisations and campaigns including Love Music Hate Racism (new window) and Unite Against Facism (new window).
The 2011 Local Elections saw the BNP only winning a single seat as well as losing all five of their councillors in Stoke-on-Trent, considered by the party as their last remaining electoral stronghold.
In total they now have just 14 councillors, most of which will be up for re-election in the next two years. Of these they have just two councillors in Bradford, two in Pendle and two in Amber Valley.
However we must not be complacent. The BNP have not gone away and and the NASUWT will continue to campaign against them and their racist ideology.
The NASUWT is campaigning vigorously for the teacher’s contract to be amended in line with those of the police, armed forces and prison service to prevent BNP members from working as teachers.
We are equally strongly pressing for BNP members to be banned from serving on governing bodies. However, there is an immediate threat posed by those already serving on governing bodies that needs to be addressed.
