Save the Date! International Solidarity Officers Conference Saturday 2nd July 2022

The NEU has a proud history of international solidarity. We understand that our movement is global and that our union strength is interwoven with the strength of sister unions around the world. The ISO Conference 2022 is therefore an exciting opportunity for ISOs and NEU members to learn more about key global issues and how to champion international solidarity in their communities. More information to come!
