NUT18: Job sharing of executive posts
Motion 16 challenged the Executive's opposition to the idea of such job shares, with one of the main reasons given being the amalgamation. As speakers pointed out if job shares are alright for 'lower' positions in the union then why not the executive. Job shares are generally encouraged by the union on its website. Various practical objections were termed by one speaker as
bogus with there being solutions for every one and they proceeded to give solutions to such perceived problems. Modern working practices were advocated and the union needed to be a leader in employment practice.
