The TUC, along with the seven teaching and school support unions in England, have issued a revised version of the TUC Academies Model Agreement. In line with previous editions, the agreement aims to give unions greater recognition in academies and free schools, improve their negotiating position and allow reps the right to have time off for union duties. The agreement has been signed by the teaching unions (ATL, NAHT, NASUWT and NUT) and the unions representing support and other professional school staff (GMB, UNISON and Unite). The Agreement is available to download here in Word and PDF formats.
The TUC and affiliated school workforce unions have produced a short guidance note to support use of the Model Agreement.
