FNE in Congress on the 10th and 11th of May
The National Federation of Education Unions (FNE) holds its ninth Congress on the 10th and 11th of May (Saturday and Sunday) at Culturgest, in Lisbon. In addition to the election of the secretary-general who will dictate a new four-year term at the helm of this Federation, the congress, which kicks off at 10 am on 10 May, will approve the FNE union action plan until 2012.
 
Participating in this congress will be a strong international delegation, made up particularly of all CPLP countries, with the exception of Timor-Leste, where the internal situation prevented the displacement of the representation of the teachers' union in that country. Also at the international level, union representatives include delegates from Spain, France, the United Kingdom, Sweden, Estonia, Poland, the Czech Republic, Romania, Bulgaria, Hungary, Malta, Cyprus and Italy. Also present will be the Secretary-General of the European Union Education Committee, Martin Rommer.
 
The union action plan for the next four years, a broad debate about unionism in the sector and the analysis of all policies of this Ministry of Education, even after the Memorandum of Understanding for performance evaluation, as well as the strategies and forms of fighting serious issues raised by this ECD, will naturally be other points of discussion at this Congress.
 
At 3:00 pm on the 11th, the new governing bodies will be announced and, about half an hour later, it is time for the closing speeches, either by the new secretary general of FNE, or by João Proença, the secretary general of UGT.
In this closing session, several social partners and parliamentary delegations will be present.
 
This congress has the particularity of being preceded by another one, the day before. This is an Extraordinary Conference of the CPSLP-SE (Union of Portuguese Speaking Countries? Union of Education). The latter will address a number of international issues and approve a Lisbon Declaration, alluding to a series of issues that most affect many of the Portuguese-speaking countries, namely with regard to the fight against HIV.
