Commenting on the decision of the States Employment Board (SEB) to impose the 2018/19 pay award on teachers, Chris Keates, General Secretary of the NASUWT, the largest Teachers’ Union in Jersey, said:
“The NASUWT utterly condemns the decision to impose this pay award without agreement. This has caused intense anger among teachers.
“We have objected repeatedly to the lack of meaningful negotiation around pay, and by imposing the award the SEB has shown contempt for teachers and contempt for meaningful negotiation.
“This imposed award amounts to a substantial real-terms pay cut for teachers, and compounds the erosion in pay over the last decade, which will mean that by 2020 teachers’ pay will have been cut by 11% in real terms.
“The SEB has ignored the clear evidence, presented by the NASUWT, that teachers require a substantial, above-inflation pay increase.
“The NASUWT’s opinion survey of members clearly demonstrates their anger.
“In the light of this development the NASUWT will now be giving serious consideration to balloting for industrial action.”
