Trade unions representing 375,000 teachers across the UK are launching an historic partnership. The unions representing teachers in England and Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland have agreed to work in partnership to the benefit of teachers in our respective countries. Despite the differing education systems many of the challenges teachers face are the same and this partnership will enable us to address these more effectively and allow our respective members to benefit from support from the appropriate union should they move between the countries of the UK. The teacher unions signed up to the agreement are the Educational Institute of Scotland (EIS), the Irish National Teachers’ Organisation (INTO), the National Union of Teachers (NUT) and the Ulster Teachers’ Union (UTU). The four unions agree to work as partners in close co-operation, campaigning together where appropriate, and promoting our shared trade union values.
