Speaking following the latest talks at the DfE with education unions, NASUWT General Secretary Dr Patrick Roach said:

“Although this was a largely amicable meeting, the lack of real progress remains of concern. 

“It still remains the case there is a considerable gap to fill if we are to find a way forward to resolve our disputes and avoid the risk of further worsening of industrial relations. 

“Ministers need to abandon their preconceptions and engage in meaningful dialogue to find a resolution. 

“The Education Secretary cannot continue to procrastinate when there are sensible options that could be progressed in the interests of teachers, pupils and the government. 

“The NASUWT remains ready and committed to negotiations but it is now incumbent on ministers to demonstrate that they are equally willing to negotiate to address the serious concerns of our members.”
