Libfest planning meeting – Thursday 1st December 6pm @ The Brown Bear

This will be the first of many meetings to come together and discuss the planning of the next Libfest event. The event we hosted last year was very successful in some respects and we hope to build on that with this next event.

General Branch Meeting – Saturday 1st December 11am

This is the local meeting to vote on national policy/motions that have been raised. All decisions here will be carried to the conference by our Sheffield delegates.

For the full agenda members should refer to the Sheffield mailing list. All national conference motions are to be found in the Internal Bulletin

This will be held at the IWW Office:

IWW Office, Office 2, 110 Wicker, Sheffield S3 8JD

The building is accessible and child care is provided.

These meetings have to be pretty efficient to get through all the agenda items so they’re fairly formal… but a catch up tends to follow the meeting.

Educators Underground is a local network for supporting education workers and creating spaces for co-operation, solidarity and positivity in education. We are members, supporters and fellow travellers of the Industrial Workers of the World union in addition to our own trade unions.

Our meetings allow teachers and support staff some space to blow off steam, network with workers outside their schools/nurseries and seek support for issues in the workplace.

We also devote time to discussing alternative education models and how we can integrate these into our practice.

June events

AGM -4th June 11am

The next Branch Meeting of the Sheffield IWW General Members’ Branch will take place on Saturday the 4th of June, at 11:00am, at our office in the SYAC building on the Wicker.

This meeting is also our Branch AGM (Annual General Meeting), at which our Branch must elect the officers who will serve the branch until June 2016.  Any member-in-good-standing of the Sheffield IWW, including the incumbent officers, may stand for election in one or more of these posts.

In order to stand, simply notify the branch at large of your candidacy at any time before the ballot.  Ideally, candidates should make statements or comments in support of their candidacy on the e-mail list or by other means before the AGM, although this is not a requirement for standing.  Incumbent officers in particular should try well in advance to announce their intention to either defend their position by election or to stand down, to encourage other candidates to come forward.

This will be held at the IWW Office:

May Events

Can Education Change the World? – Saturday 7th May 1pm

Erdelan Baran, Kurdistan National Congress (KNK) Foreign Affairs Committee, will present on ongoing efforts to build feminist and libertarian schools in the self-governing cantons of Northern Syria. Education in Rojava is not about getting a career or getting rich, instead students are challenged to ask themselves “How can I better society?”. Lessons encourage independence, critical thinking and active participation in the democratic organisation of communities.

The meeting is hosted by Sheffield Educators Underground. Educators Underground is a project initiated by teachers and support staff who are members of the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) union. Educators Undergound aims to create spaces for co-operation, solidarity and positivity in education and to support teachers and support staff across the city to take action for social change.

Free entry, food and refreshments will be provided.

This will be held at Victoria Hall Methodist Church, Norfolk Street, S1 2JB.
