Northern Ireland Assembly Stormont approach

Speaking ahead of the restoration of the Northern Ireland Executive and Assembly at Stormont, the NASUWT welcomes the return of Government and locally accountable decision-making.
NASUWT General Secretary Dr Patrick Roach said:
“The NASUWT welcomes the return to Government, but will hold the incoming Executive to account for how they treat teachers and FE lecturers.
“The breakdown of Government, along with others before it, has done nothing for working people and has led to a situation where public sector pay has fallen massively and public services have suffered.
“It is now incumbent on incoming Ministers to ensure that the massive real terms pay losses for both teachers and FE lecturers are addressed as the number one priority.”
NASUWT National Official Northern Ireland Justin McCamphill said:
“NASUWT members have taken strike action four times since we entered the current pay dispute and members are determined to take strike action again if progress isn’t made to address their legitimate demands.
“NASUWT members should be proud that their actions, together with the rest of the public sector, have helped to restore the Executive and while there will be a honeymoon period for the Executive it will be short-lived if pay isn’t addressed in the first days of the new administration.
“In the medium to longer term we expect the Executive to work together to build an education system which delivers for all young people, and in particular deals with the crisis in special education.”
