UPDATE: 18th July 2022


Pay Ballot

The NEU Executive has confirmed that the preliminary pay ballot will start on Saturday 24th September – this will be an online ballot and an email will go to members in the ballot group early that morning.

We are holding Ballot Mobilising Meetings across Tower Hamlets on Monday 19th September – please attend the one that is most convenient for you and be ready to hold a school meeting later in that week.

We expect the STRB report to be published this week and will let you know as soon as we know what is in it.

Where can I attend a ballot mobilising meeting?

The following schools in Tower Hamlets will be hosting a meeting to mobilise for the ballot on Monday 19th September at 5pm. Go along to the one that suits you best:

Central Foundation

George Green’s


Langdon Park


Stepney Green

Thomas Buxton

New Members

Please do keep a lookout for new staff at your school and recruit them to the NEU. Ask your head if you can introduce yourself to staff at the INSET day on the first day back.

Staff can join online here

Please ask any existing members of the NEU who have moved school to update their membership details as soon as possible.

Members can update their details here.

If anyone has any difficulty doing that please let us know so that we can help them amend their records.

Up-to-date membership lists will be vital if we are to win the ballot on pay.

Moving on and moving in

At the end of term, we have a number of school Reps who are moving on to new schools, or in some cases to what we hope will be a long and happy retirement.

We are also losing some members of the Committee.

We would like to thank you all for the vital contribution you have made to the Union and in support for your members.

We are pleased to be welcoming some new faces to the Committee. If you would be interested in being part of the Tower Hamlets and the City Committee, please let us know. We are particularly keen to have more primary school members.
