This is the last year that the ATL section and NUT section will be holding separate conferences. During Easter 2019, we’ll be coming together as one union to hold our first National Education Union annual conference.
Motions which are passed at both conferences which relate to all National Education Union members will be referred to the Joint Executive Council of the National Education Union for implementation.
Decisions agreed at one section’s conference will be referred to that section’s Executive committee, who will then decide what to recommend as a course of action to the NEU’s governing body, the Joint Executive Committee (JEC), which has representatives from both NUT and ATL sections. The JEC will then decide the appropriate course of action for the NEU as a whole.
A few motions, however, refer to policies or activities which just affect one section – for example bringing an NUT or ATL position in line with the other section’s position – and, if agreed at conference, will then be considered at the relevant section’s Executive Committee.
