Nursery Nurse Campaign – Get in Touch!

I was overwhelmed as to how many Nursery Nurses came to the meeting on May 15th 2008. All volunteering to help progress the Nursery Nurse re-grading campaign.

We discussed the work done by Barnet UNISON so far: the research we have done into your role, the impact of The Early Years Foundation Stage on your job content and responsibilities. The volunteers have added to it. They were as alarmed as myself to the lack of understanding and recognition about your job role by HR and senior management, As a result of the background work we have done a more favourable Job Description has been drawn up and has been circulated to those present at the meeting for consultation.

Should you get a call from a Nursery Nurse from another school, please call them back as it is one of the volunteers who is adopting your school to help with the campaign. Their work and support will be crucial, especially if we have to take strike action next term to get a fair deal for you.

There is progress but then there is London Borough of Barnet progress! Now we are organized, no more delays, no more stalling! As a Nursery Nurse or organising steward, should you want to get involved in the fair deal for nursery nurses campaign forward your details including email addresses and mobile no. to me at The Nursery Nurse Campaign,
UNISON Office, Building 4, North London Business Park, Oakleigh Road South, London N11 1NP, or email us on
