The NASUWT-The Teachers’ Union, is pausing its current campaign of action short of strike action to support negotiations with the DESC over the ongoing concerns of members about pay, conditions of service and workload.

The Union will not hesitate to ballot members for further action if the necessary positive progress is not made by Ministers in addressing their concerns.

Dr Patrick Roach, NASUWT General Secretary, said:

“Whilst NASUWT members remain concerned about pay and workload, they also remain committed to doing everything possible to support pupils’ education during the current pandemic.

“In a ballot of NASUWT members in schools and at the University College Isle of Man, 88% of members voting expressed support for further industrial action over pay, pensions and conditions of service matters, sending a clear message of the continuing concerns and priorities amongst teachers on the island.

“However, NASUWT members have also expressed their commitment to supporting ongoing discussions between the Union and the DESC who are examining a range of issues affecting teachers’ conditions of service.

“The NASUWT welcomes the recent positive engagement by the Department officials and the Minister and looks forward to seeing positive and constructive outcomes from the current negotiations.”
