Members in Nottinghamshire should by now be aware that the NUT merged into the National Education Union with effect from 1 September 2017. The National Union of Teachers and the Association of Teachers and Lecturers now jointly form the National Education Union (NEU). The NEU is the legal successor to both unions. There is a transition period until 1 January 2019, during which there is no material difference to the current position for representation of members, as the NUT will operate as the NUT section of the NEU and the ATL will operate as the ATL section of the NEU. Arrangements for bargaining machinery therefore need not change during the transition period. From 1 January 2019 we will operate as a single entity so we will discuss with you, during the transition period, any necessary steps to take effect from 1 January 2019.

The merger of the NUT and ATL into the NEU will strengthen the representation of teachers and other staff in our schools. At a time when the Government has been eroding the pay and conditions of all school staff it is vital that we aim to achieve greater strength in numbers. We believe this will be beneficial for both staff and students.
With more than 450,000 members, the National Education Union represents the majority of teachers and other education professionals, providing broader support in maintained and independent schools and colleges and a stronger voice in the education debate.
Combining the expertise and experience of both ATL and the NUT, the National Education Union is committed to making the education sector a great place to work. It will continue to campaign for sustainable workloads, fight for a fairly-funded education system and champion pay and working conditions. It will make education a great place to teach - which values and promotes professional expertise and learns from relevant data; and a great place to learn - with a broad curriculum to motivate learners, allowing them to develop their interests and skills for the future.
