Secondary principals want 15 percent pay rise

From Morning Report, 6:45 am on 22 May 2019

Secondary school principals are the latest group of school staff to lodge a pay claim with the Education Ministry. They're after a 15 percent pay rise, another week of annual leave and $1000 a year to spend on wellbeing. The claim was lodged by the Secondary Principals Association union and the Post Primary Teachers Association and talks are expected to start on Friday. Scott Haines from the Secondary Principals Association union told RNZ education correspondent, John Gerritsen, principals are under valued and it's time to fix that.
