The NASUWT, with other school workforce trade unions, is currently negotiating a trade union recognition agreement with Congleton Multi-Academy Trust (Congleton MAT) for consultation and collective bargaining purposes.

This provides the necessary structures for the NASUWT to meet with Congleton MAT at a national level and on a regular basis in the Congleton MAT Joint Negotiating Committee (JNC).

The JNC is where the trade unions meet with Congleton MAT to negotiate on pay, conditions of service issues and on policies and procedures for teachers and other Congleton MAT staff.
