Responding to the judgement of the Industrial Disputes Tribunal over the Guernsey teachers’ pay award, Dr Patrick Roach, General Secretary of NASUWT-The Teachers’ Union, said:

“The NASUWT is deeply disappointed that the Tribunal has ignored the clear evidence that was put before them and found entirely in favour of the States.

“This decision will do nothing to resolve the collective grievance of our members, nor restore the confidence and morale of teachers.

“The Tribunal has taken at face value the flawed data submitted by the Sates whilst admitting that they had reached their decision without a full understanding of the Union’s position.

“The Tribunal’s judgement will not end this dispute and our dispute with the States continues.

“Deputy Mahoney’s inflammatory comment that ‘if they don’t like it, they can leave’ shows utter contempt for dedicated teachers and the States should apologise and withdraw those remarks immediately.”
