The NASUWT-The Teachers’ Union has reached a resolution in its dispute at Hutchesons’ Grammar School in Glasgow.
It follows a commitment from the employer to the staged reintroduction of a 3% salary enhancement above recommended pay levels for members, and a 10-year guarantee on the level of employer contributions in a new pension scheme.
NASUWT members took two days of strike action earlier this year after the school threatened to sack teachers if they did not agree to the transfer of their pensions to the new scheme. But the resolve of members and an ability to reach compromise from both sides has secured this resolution.
Dr Patrick Roach, NASUWT General Secretary, said:

“That we have secured this commitment to enhanced pay levels is down to the resolve of members.
“This agreement secures better pay and guarantees over pension contributions which will benefit our members.”
 Mike Corbett, NASUWT National Official Scotland, said:
“This dispute is now officially over, following the first teacher strikes in the school's almost 400-year history.
“Members should feel proud that through their strength they have secured a positive outcome from the employer.”
