Plans are now well in hand to mark Workers’ Memorial Day on 28 April at 12.30 in Central Park, at our Memorial Tree close to the lake. A further event will be the Trades Council’s traditional rally at Friends Meeting House starting at 7.30pm on 1 May.
Delegates received a report of the Careers Convention at Brentwood School where students were given a vast range of informative material. Amongst these were locally published leaflets about the importance of trade unions in the workplace. In a report on teachers’ concerns in schools was the scale of bullying by headteachers. This is a growing and serious issue and one that will be debated at the NUT Annual Conference.
