Government attack on our pay system confirmed- ACT NOW

The Government is pressing ahead with its plans to tear up the national teacher pay system and with its damaging changes to our pensions. Michael Gove wants to dismantle the national pay structure and introduce performance related pay for all teachers. The new School Teachers’ Pay and Conditions document will be published at the start of the summer term and governing bodies will begin to adopt new pay policies.

This is a moment of extreme danger for our profession. The longstanding national pay system is being broken up, taking away teachers’ legitimate pay progression expectations, on top of the attack on our pensions.

Without progress through negotiation, strike action is inevitable. Unions can not stand back when their members are threatened in this way.
