Gawain possesses a rare set of skills that can build consensus and encourage members to congregate around the most important issues, making common and positive purpose rather than collapsing over less significant areas of difference. He has been like a breath of fresh air for Norfolk NEU and has brought a campaigning approach to operations. His organisational skills, which he has demonstrated in both the local arena and on the national field, are of the highest order. But above all Gawain is a dedicated educationalist and a committed trade unionist.
I’m backing Gawain for Deputy General Secretary of the NEU.
