Education Workers Network

The recent cutbacks in education in the north and

privatisation in education through PFIs and PPP's is

an attack not only on workers conditions but affects

everyone in the community from the children to the

kitchen workers

The recent cutbacks in education in the north and

privatisation in education through PFIs and PPP's is

an attack not only on workers conditions but affects

everyone in the community from the children to the

kitchen workers and more than ever there is a greater

need to establish a education workers network that is

run by all and committed to building solidarity amongst workers and fighting the aggressive assault on education.

The creation of an Educational Workers Network (EWN) in

Belfast will be part of a series of discussions taking place both north and south and will hopefully bring together all workers currently divided either because of religion, educational system

or job description. It will cut through the red tape

that over and over again is used to gag the voices of

the working class. School workers in local areas will

have a means to get in touch with one another and join

with others in their local communities, to fight more

effectively and with greater confidence for the things

most important to them.

The discussion will take place with the view of setting up a network on the 19th of November in the Glor na Gael, 145 Falls Road, Belfast at 2pm.

Hope to see you there!

Due to technical problems with the venue the discussion regarding setting up a EWN will be postponed pending another venue.
