This January, Gavin Williamson forced teachers into unprecedented national action. Whilst the government denied the dangers of COVID, teachers refused to put themselves and their students at risk.
It was a stand-off, and the government blinked first.
But this wasn’t by chance. Unions won thanks to unprecedented mass organising of their members online and over the phone. Recruitment went through the roof, and school bosses were forced to concede.
Come hear how local NEU rep Steve Scott pulled this off in East Yorkshire, and get introduced to our new online organising toolkit, so you can pull off the same mass organising in your workplace.
