ANTI ACADEMY CAMPAIGNER SUSPENDED BY HARINGEY COUNCIL
A London council has suspended an elected NUT official. Julie Davies, Haringey NUT branch secretary and a vocal supporter of the Save Downhills anti academy campaign, was suspended just before the end of the summer term. This week the NUT will challenge the Council at the High Court.

The Save Downhills campaign, which incorporated parents, teachers and supporters and was backed by the National Union of Teachers, had judicially reviewed Education Secretary Michael Gove’s decision to turn the school into an academy.
NUT and Unison members at the school will take joint strike action on June 19th. Please rush messages of support to Downhills UNISON & NUT members at: firstname.lastname@example.org Branchsecretary@haringeyunison.co.uk and email@example.com
