Who’s who in the SSTA

Getting in touch with the SSTA

It is not necessary to contact the school representative in the first instance. Should the matter be confidential or a matter which the school representative would not be expected to handle you should contact SSTA HQ. The school representative can initially assist in matters relating to the school 35 hour agreement and similar school related issues. You may also contact the SSTA District Secretary (listed below).

The District Secretary can advise to a certain extent and matters which are generally discussed with the employer at the local JCC/JCG or LNCT. It is more likely, however, that you will require to contact the General Secretary. You should certainly do so in respect of any contractual or disciplinary issue. You should write if the problem is not urgent. Please telephone only where the use of the post may cause damaging delay. You can also email. It should be noted that emailed correspondence is not given any priority over postal items.
