Desire for unity;Letter

WITH regard to your article, "Hankering after unity" (TES, April 24), the desire of the teaching profession for professional trade union unity is growing. Professional Unity 2000 has had a 100 per cent increase in affiliations in one year. The creation of a General Teaching Council will only make this more necessary.

If any readers would like to see one strong united and professional teachers' union, get in touch please. For the record my hair is not bleached, just grey.
