Dear colleague

Helping you
We can help you become more engaged, informed and involved in the NUT if you can tell us more about yourself. What sector do you work in? Are you full-time or part-time? What are your equality characteristics? Your information will help us target details of exclusive NUT events, campaigns and activities which may interest you and it will ensure that you don’t miss your chance to vote in equality constituency seat elections for the National Executive.

So tell us more – it’s easy to do and you will reap the rewards. Simply check and update your details at You can follow our quick-step-guide.

For information on security, see our Data Protection statement at

As well as helping us to target appropriate materials to you, the data will feed into anonymous statistical reports which help us identify barriers to participation in our structures. Information that you provide us will remain strictly confidential. We won’t share your information outside the NUT or with any local reps or officers without your permission.

Your employer should also be asking you for this information. Schools, colleges and local authorities have a statutory duty to assess the equality impact of their policies and procedures on staff.

Getting involved
For more information on the NUT’s equality work, please visit our website Look out for links to resources that you can use to mark Equal Pay Day 2016 on 10 November and UK Disability History Month which runs from 22 November to 22 December. If you want to get involved in reviewing the equality impact of policies and procedures in your workplace, please contact your NUT rep, division secretary, or local equality officer.

Wishing you all the best.

Yours sincerely

Kevin Courtney
