Following the announcement of a day of strike action on 26th February 2019, by the NASUWT-The Teachers’ Union, further discussions have taken place with the negotiators of the States Education Board (SEB).
 
As a result of these discussions some progress is being made towards an improved offer. In order to facilitate continuing discussions next week the NASUWT has agreed to suspend the planned day of strike action on 26th February.
 
Chris Keates, NASUWT General Secretary, said:
 
“It is always the aim of the NASUWT to seek to reach a negotiated outcome to pay discussions.
 
“To date the States has handled its approach to the teachers’ pay award very poorly, leaving teachers angry and frustrated. That anger and frustration resulted in teachers voting for industrial action.
 
“It is disappointing that it took the notification of industrial action to secure further discussions but nevertheless the States are now back round the negotiating table and in the light of this the Union is prepared to suspend next Tuesday’s action.
 
“The States should be in no doubt however, that if next week’s discussions do not result in progress towards a better deal for teachers, industrial action will be back on the cards as teachers’ patience has run out.”
