The procedure is endorsed by the National Joint Council for Staff in Sixth Form Colleges for colleges.
Model policies and policy checklists are designed to assist NEU reps in negotiating the best employment policies on behalf of their members.
Reps should strive to ensure policies are compliant with the NEU models.
Reps should consult members before agreeing new policies or changes to existing policies and should not agree policies that do not meet member expectations, any statutory requirements and NEU minimums.
If a policy is unacceptable members should consider a collective response which may include taking industrial action. For further advice contact your NEU branch.
