Kylie Booth-Martinez

Aboriginal Education Worker Kylie Booth-Martinez, of Assumption Catholic PrimarySchool and St Stanislaus' College in Bathurst, was elected to fill a casual vacancy on the union’s Executive at the IEU Council meeting on Saturday 20 March (another vacancy is advertised here in this issue if you would like to nominate).

Despite intense rainfall and flooding throughout NSW, about 120 people attended the Council meeting, the first held face-to-face since 2019. Guest speakers included NESA CEO Paul Martin and Patrick Lee, former IEU Deputy Secretary and co-author of the Gallop Report resulting from the Independent Inquiry into Valuing the Teaching Profession, commissioned by the NSW Teachers Federation in 2020.
