The NASUWT, with the other school workforce trade unions, has negotiated a trade union recognition agreement with the Harris Federation of South London Schools (Harris Academies) for consultation and collective bargaining purposes.

This provides the necessary structures for the NASUWT to meet with Harris Academies at a national level and on a regular basis in the Harris Academies National Joint Consultative Committee (JCC).

The JCC is where the trade unions meet with Harris Academies to negotiate on pay, conditions of service issues and on policies and procedures for teachers and other Harris Academies staff.

A copy of the trade union recognition agreement is available on the right/below.

Teachers' Pay in Harris Academies

The NASUWT seeks to ensure that members in academy schools have, at least, the equivalent pay award to teachers in other maintained schools.

Teachers working in a Harris Academy should continue to receive the same pay increase and benefits as teachers in the maintained sector.
