As our local secretary, Gawain transformed the way we operate. The organising strategy he developed has enabled us to deal with the fragmented, free market system that has destroyed our democratic, public service model. He brought energy, commitment and rigour to the committee but above all a vision of how to confront the challenges we face as trade unionists. In all my thirty-five years in the NUT, I have not met anyone who has inspired others so much with their drive for a better world.
That’s why I’m backing Gawain for Deputy General Secretary.
