The NASUWT had its inaugural meeting with South Pennine Academies on 27th April 2017 at Waterhead Academy, Oldham.

The NASUWT had an extremely positive meeting with Natalie Allen, South Pennine’s HR Director, in setting the parameters for the harmonisation of TUPE'd policies. Although the NASUWT currently has not agreed national policies with this multi-academy trust (MAT), the Union has agreed a Trade Union Recognition Agreement (TURA) (see right/below).
