Recognition model agreement for independent schools

The aim of these model recognition and facility agreements is to provide a framework that independent schools can adopt to recognise the NEU. 

Model recognition agreement

Our 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.

The NEU model facility time agreement is designed to be used in conjunction with the model independent school recognition agreement.
