Welcome to the Northumberland District web pages. Please email district secretary Alex Snowdon - - to find out more about local meetings and campaigning, training opportunities, annual conference and other opportunities to participate in the union. 

We have a strong network of school reps in Northumberland. The rep is the voice for members at work and has a hugely important role to play in building a strong union that can make a difference. If you would like to become a rep, get in touch with Alex and also see here for more info.

Contact our lead caseworker Maggie Coombe - - if you have an issue at work and would like support. Maggie  leads a team of caseworkers who can support members with resolving issues and problems. 

In addition to Alex and Maggie, our main officers are: Sean Kelly and Tony Nicholls (assistant secretaries), Lorraine Metcalf (treasurer) and Yvonne Rushmere (president). We encourage members to get involved in the union in whatever way possible. Please check and update your contact details on MyNEU to ensure you receive our communications.
