Leicester NUT Section of the NEU

1st September 2017

The National Education Union

From 1st September 2017, The National Education Union comes into existence. This new union is formed from The National Union of Teachers (NUT) and The Association of Teachers and Lecturers (ATL).

Until January 2019, local branches of the NUT and ATL will continue to operate as before and so existing NUT members will continue to be supported by local NUT officers. New members, including all education workers, will join the NEU, but will also be supported by local NUT or ATL officers. If you need support, in the first instance contact the NUT adviceline on 0203 006 6266.

We encourage you to have school NEU meetings jointly with NUT and ATL members until January 2019 when those separate unions will officially cease to exist. Join The NUT/NEU at teachers.org.uk/join or neu.org.uk/join, or by ringing 0845 3001669 or 0207 3806369.
