NUT doing their bit on Saturday. Message sent to NUT members:
We need your help to stop the BNP in Barking and Dagenham. On 6 May there is a real chance of the BNP taking control of education in Barking and Dagenham. They are already the official opposition and they are making a huge effort to win overall control of their first council in the May elections.
NUT members from across London and the South East are helping their colleagues in Barking and Dagenham to ensure that every household is leafleted and canvassed.
Please join us if you can on Saturday 17 April, when we will be supporting the HOPE not hate campaign day of action alongside colleagues from UNISON, PCS, RMT, Usdaw and Unite. We need to deliver a special 12-page newspaper (which has been sponsored by the NUT) to properties in the borough.
We will be meeting from 10.30am at Transport House, 50-52 New Road, Dagenham RM9 6YS. There will be campaigning sessions through until 5.00pm, lunch will be provided and there will be free entertainment from Billy Bragg!
We hope to see you in Dagenham on 17 April
