hackney NUT section


Welcome to the website of the Hackney Branch of the National Union of Teachers, the Hackney Teachers Association

The NUT is the largest teachers’ union both locally and nationally.  Hackney NUT has over 2000 members from nursery to 6th Form. We are the largest because we are the most effective.

The HTA is the only classroom teaching union to meet regularly with the Hackney Learning Trust. We negotiate with them on a range of issues affecting all teachers winning some of the best local agreements in the country. The HTA represent all teachers on the Schools Forum in Hackney.

We encourage the participation of all members. We regularly produce newsletters and advice for members. We send delegates to the NUT black members' conferences.

The HTA recognises and celebrates the fact that we are a part of a vibrant inner city community. We work alongside community groups and other trade unionists.

We have been in the forefront of campaigns to oppose SATs, performance pay and league tables. We defend comprehensive, state education and oppose selection and privatisation. We have a proud record of fighting racism and fascism and defending asylum seekers.
