Standing Together: 5 Reasons Why Teachers Should Join a Union

With years of experience in the Isle of Man branch of the National Association of Head Teachers, I know the value of standing together with your colleagues in a union. Through my various roles, including President, Vice President, Branch Secretary, and casework rep, I have seen the power of collective bargaining and advocacy for teachers. In this blog post, I will outline the key reasons why teachers should consider joining a trade union.

Education Hustings # 4: Ramsey

The Isle of Man General Election takes place on Thursday 23rd September 2021 with all seats in the House of Keys in contention. In the run up to the General Election, the Isle of Man Branch of the National Association of Head Teachers (NAHT) has organised a series of hustings around several of the island’s constituencies which will focus on schools and education. NAHT IOM want to shine a spotlight on education throughout the election to ensure it sits with prominence on the agenda of all prospective MHKs seeking election. The branch has produced its own “manifesto for education” and has challenged the candidates to “pledge” their support to their cause. As the Branch Secretary for NAHT IOM, Max Kelly will be present at each of the four hustings events over the course of the week.
