Primary teachers strike

From The Panel, 4:16 pm on 12 November 2018

Primary teachers have begun rolling strikes today, starting in Auckland and moving across the country this week. Opposition leader Simon Bridges says teachers are looking at the pay rates of other professions and wanting more but the Employment Relations Authority has called the pay demand unrealistic.

Alwyn Poole from Villa Education Trust gives us his view of the situation.
