Message from the National President.

I am sure all TEU members have been as horrified as I am with the events that have unfolded where Russia has invaded the peaceful sovereign nation of Ukraine. As a member of Education International we fully support their statement:

“Ukraine: Education unions from around the world stand in solidarity with the people of Ukraine and have condemned the Russian invasion of the country.”

To our members from Ukraine and all those who have links to Ukraine who are in Aotearoa New Zealand we send aroha and awhi as we can only imagine the distress and concern you must be feeling. And to the people of Ukraine, who have shown such solidarity and strength we say kia kaha – we stand with you.
