Teachers set to deliberate

Teachers set to deliberate

9 November 2018

Employment Relations Authority Chief James Crichton has recommended that NZEI Te Riu Roa members accept the latest offer from the Ministry of Education, at the conclusion of four days of facilitation between the union and the Ministry.

Primary teachers and principals are holding mass meetings next week as part of the week of rolling strike action, which will include consideration of the latest Ministry offers and the recommendation.

NZEI Te Riu Roa President Lynda Stuart said: "We have always said we would take any recommendations and offers back to members, and that is exactly what will happen next week. It will be up to them to decide whether the offers are sufficient to fix the education crisis."

The union's 30,000 primary teacher and principal members are holding meetings across the country from 12-16 November.
