NASUWT Campaign Plan 2022

The events of the last two years have undoubtedly turbocharged the pressures on our members, but we are ready and determined to take action to put teachers first.

Foreword to NASUWT 2022 Campaign Plan by the General Secretary

We stand united with our fellow trade unionists at home and around the world - united in our shared determination to speak out against injustice and to stand up for the rights of working people. And united in our conviction that education is the most powerful weapon in the fight for peace.

Our fight for education and for the rights of working people begins right here, right now. It starts with the priorities set at our Annual Conference on workload, pay, the wellbeing of teachers and pupils, on equalities and the fight against racism and misogyny.

We will take forward this Campaign Plan into workplaces, Local Associations, regionally and nationally to secure a Better Deal for All Teachers.

We will not stand by whilst employers play fast and loose with our members’ terms and conditions of service or fail to uphold the standards we expect or who believe it’s okay to threaten teachers with the sack in order to drive down their pensions, pay and working conditions.

And we applaud our members across the country who have already taken a stand, fought back and won, demonstrating the power of our Union, successfully defending their pensions, pay and working conditions and winning the right to be consulted properly on future changes to their terms and conditions.

And whilst we will always challenge bad employment practices, we will also redouble our efforts to demand better from all governments and administrations: fair pay, respect for rights at work, better support for teachers and headteachers, and action to tackle the impact of the cost of living crisis.

That is what it means to be the NASUWT.

The events of the last two years have undoubtedly turbocharged the pressures on our members, but we are ready and determined to take action to put teachers first.

Join with us and join in and help us deliver our agenda for change and for a Better Deal for All Teachers.

Dr Patrick Roach
