Schools: Pay fight on?

Submitted by AWL on 7 December, 2007 - 10:46

As we go to press the publication of the School Teachers’ Review Body recommondation on teachers’ pay for 2008 is imminent. The STRB passed their report on to the government at the end of October but there has been no announcement yet. Meanwhile the Government has reaffirmed its intention to restrict teachers’ pay increases to no more than its 2 per cent public sector pay target.

Teachers’ pay increases for 2005, 2006 and 2007 were all below inflation, and the union is committed to ballot its members if the 2008 pay award is also below inflation.
