I’ve known Gawain many years as a passionate and dedicated NEU member and activist. In Bracknell Forest we’re a small district and it’s unusual for us to be a high priority for union executive members to visit. This never stopped Gawain visiting our general meetings when he was an executive member living in Oxford, making a considerable journey just to speak to our members to gather their thoughts and ideas and discuss union campaigns with them. It’s always been clear to me that Gawain brings the same passion to building the union and organising the profession as he does to working in the classroom with his students, and he would be an asset as our union’s deputy general secretary.
