GPTU sends its support to Haringey NUT and  Julie Davies. we totally support the right of Union members to elect whoever they choose as their representatives and we also support Haringey NUT over the often contested issue of Trade Union facilities and time which are necessary to properly represent TU members. Both these issues are very important to Trade Unionism and threats against them should be strongly resisted.

Haringey NUT will be strking over the suspension of union rep Julie Davies. This follows complaints from headteachers over her activities in defending members. The basic issue is that union members have the right to choose their own representatives however inconvenient that may be for bosses. I have been supporting her via @GreenEdPolicy .  Now the Daily Mail has devoted its front page to attacking her and using her case to launch a general attack on facilities agreements.

Could we give support via Twitter using @TeacherROAR  and hashtag #*HateMail* <>   and send an email of solidarity to the union branch
