  • YMN is a network of young, new and student members of NZEI, the union for early childhood and primary teachers and school support staff.
  • All young or new members can participate in the network.
  • Groups, such as young and new members may have issues or concerns that aren’t shared or understood by the wider membership of the union.
  • Unions need to ensure all members have the opportunity to have a voice.
  • Young and new members have strength and can make a real difference.
  • The network works fairly informally, the focus is on issues rather than rules and structure.
  • An annual network hui, a get-together before the AGM of the union and a couple of elected convenors ensure there is an opportunity for young and new members to address issues they are concerned about.
  • Young and new members have strength and can make a real difference.
  • Those that got together quickly identified that there were issues that particularly affected young and new members that weren’t understood, (or sometimes supported) by the wider membership.
  • The network linked up with existing union structures set up for student teachers and was soon able to organize a national get-together with other like minded members. This has continued on an annual basis.
  • YMN has succeeded in addressing the issues of young and new members. YMN has become influential within NZEI ensuring issues faced by young and new members are understood and addressed.
  • In 2004 and 2005 YMN developed a comprehensive campaign on the negative effects of student loans on NZEI members.
  • Young and new members have strength and can make a real difference.
  • In 2006 the focus was on fixed term employment. The network succeeded in getting a union campaign on this issue put in place.
  • Young and new members continue to be vulnerable to a number of employment, registration and economic issues.
  • Young and new members have strength and can make a real difference.
