Teachers receive new pay offer

From Nine To Noon, 9:08 am on 11 September 2018

NZEI President Lynda Stuart discusses a new pay offer for primary teachers and principals with Kathryn Ryan.

It's the 2nd offer from the government in the long-running pay dispute. Last month almost 30,000 primary and intermediate school teachers and principals went on strike for the first time in 24 years, closing 1,479 schools.

The offer is a 3% pay increase each year for 3 years. Union members will vote on the offer next week.
