Govt faces possible primary, secondary teacher strikes

From Morning Report, 7:10 am on 3 October 2018

The government is facing the possibility of a double-whammy of strike action by primary and secondary teachers unless it can come up with a better pay offer. Union members in both sectors are preparing to vote on industrial action after rejecting government offers that would give most teachers a 9.3 percent pay rise over three years. At the PPTA's annual conference in Wellington, Auckland representative, Austen Pageau, was one of several speakers who said the offer was no good.
