PPTA members to vote on settlement

PPTA members to vote on settlement

On September 22 PPTA's bargaining team reached a settlement with the Ministry of Education during negotiations for the Secondary Teachers Collective Agreement.

The settlement has several improvements on the ministry offer PPTA members rejected earlier this year and will be taken for members to vote on whether or not to accept it.

On Monday PPTA's executive voted to endorse the settlement which will be put to members throughout the country in a series of paid union meetings (PUMs) held between 14 -29 October.

The association has been in bargaining with the ministry since May and a lot of hard work had gone in to getting the settlement to where it was, PPTA president Angela Roberts said.

The PUMs would be a chance for members to discuss and debate all the details of the settlement and ask any questions they might have before deciding whether or not to ratify it.

"In this end the choice is always up to the members," Roberts said.

Details of the settlement will not be revealed until members have discussed and voted on it.
