Branches of the NUT teachers’ union have two weeks to nominate candidates for its national officers’ elections.
The key contest will be for the two vice-president places.
The Socialist Teachers Alliance (STA) candidate is Roger King, secretary of Birmingham NUT and a leading black trade unionist.
The STA is also calling for a nomination for Gill Goodswen from Kirklees NUT branch.
Activists should be fighting for this.
