Organisational review of Federation underway

John Dixon
General Secretary

Federation is conducting a major organisational review of its operations in the run-up of the next Officer elections at the end of 2015.

The review will be undertaken by the Rules and Structures Committee with the assistance of two elected teachers from the union’s Executive. Submissions are sought from Officers, staff, Federation Councillors, local Associations and individual members.

Any structural or organisational review must have as its central core the following three key objectives:

  • a campaigning focused activist union
  • a strong communications strategy with our members, the wider community and political leaders
  • a sound financial/legal base driven by increased recruitment of new members and sound efficient work practices that are sustainable in the long term.

Submissions close Friday October 17. More details, including terms of reference and submission requirements, can be found here.
