Kirstie Paton.PNG

Kirstie Paton is facing disciplinary proceedings by United Learning, following a post she published in December 2020 on her NEU Inner London Executive Facebook page.

As a trade union elected representative, she is legally entitled to express concerns and criticisms of employers on matters of interest to union members without fear of formal disciplinary procedures.

Tracy McGuire.PNG

Tracy McGuire, workplace rep and elected support staff representative on the NEU Executive Council has lost her job. One of ten posts made redundant at The Rydal Academy in Darlington. Tracy, who has been a strong and effective rep in the school for several years was told about the redundancy on the same day that she submitted her Section 44 letter, informing her employer of her refusal to work in unsafe conditions. The timing of the notification about her redundancy and the fact that her name was added to the list of redundancies after she had led the campaign against the Trust and for safe working practices in the school during Covid, makes it clear that she is being victimised.
