Teacher unions support new govt offer to end industrial action

From Nine To Noon, 11:06 am on 14 June 2019

The Government has announced a new deal aimed at breaking the deadlock with teachers, that the unions will now recommend to their members. The new deal will increase all current teachers' salaries by 18.5% by 2021, one-off funding to achieve pay parity for primary and secondary teachers, and a new taskforce established to consider workload issues.
