Unity among all education workers is necessary to win the fight for better working conditions, decent pay and a broad and balanced curriculum. Gawain has been actively involved in negotiations leading to the creation of the NEU. International solidarity is at the heart of our Union, especially solidarity with Cuba, Palestine and Venezuela. As Chair of the International Committee, Gawain has overseen the development of international solidarity officers network; and helped raise awareness of the global privatisation of education. I support Gawain for Deputy General Secretary.
