Seasonal Greetings The Doncaster Executive Committee would like to wish you all a happy Christmas and peaceful New year.


NASUWT members from across the region responded to the call for National Action on the 30th November. Along with other public sector unions the NASUWT was represented at the rally held in Sheffield. A clear message of intent was sent to the Coalition Government that their policies are unjust, ill conceived and without merit.

National Action Short of Strike Action All teaching colleagues have been sent personal copies of the union’s initial guidance on the implementation of the national NASUWT instructions.

Please read carefully Follow Union guidance in your institution. Stand up for Standards DR PATRICK ROACHE General Meeting November 16th Dr Patrick Roache NASUWT Deputy General Secretary addressed the audience on a wide range of relevant issues including pension negotiations, bullying in the workplace as well as frequently asked questions surrounding the national day of action. A question and answer session followed his address which was warmly received by colleagues. President Mark Brannan offered a formal thank you at the end on behalf of the Doncaster Association membership.
