Secondary teachers should get 14.5% pay raise - arbitration panel

From Checkpoint, 5:43 pm on 31 July 2023

Secondary teachers should get a 14.5% pay rise delivered in three instalments according to an arbitration panel ruling.

The pay stand off went to arbitration after talks broke down between the Education Ministry and Post Primary Teachers Association and followed strikes around the country.

The panel has recommended a six percent pay rise backdated to the start of this July, followed by a further four percent in April next year and 3.9 percent in December next year.
