I’m an ex-union rep myself and come from a family of trade unionists, so . . .
I’ve been saying for years that the industry needs to be more collective and organised, so it’s lovely to be able to to help out in whatever small way I can.
Amazing work everyone’s doing.

Scott Thornbury backs ELT Unite
It’s good to hear that some progress is being made in terms of teachers’ working lives and I wish you all the best in your current campaign. It was in fact talking to teachers in Ireland when I was last there two years ago that really alerted me to the systemic iniquities in employment conditions.
Thanks once again, and you can count on my support.

After months of successful engagement with our branch we thank Mr. Patrick King for his careful and concise report on the sector. It is rare to have a document which encapsulates the reasons for our existence as a motivating and organising force in the sector.
