Scottish teachers elect national executive

Issue No. 2295

The EIS Scottish teachers’ union has announced election results for its national executive committee (NEC) and officer positions.

Socialist candidate Andrew Fullwood won a fantastic 46 percent of the vote for vice president.

Some 4,481 EIS members voted for Andrew while the establishment candidate narrowly won with 5,265.

Andrew stood on a clear programme of strikes to defeat the government’s pensions attacks.

The result shows that there is a significant number of people who want to fight.

There are also a significant number on the union’s NEC who are willing to lead a fight.
