A revised pay offer for teachers tabled today still represents a real-terms pay cut, says NASUWT-The Teachers’ Union.
 
The latest offer is only a marginal improvement on those made previously and completely fails to address the rising cost of living or to make headway in tackling the decade of real-terms erosion of teachers’ salaries.
 
The NASUWT will now consider the offer, but is warning it is unlikely to be sufficient to be accepted.
 
Dr Patrick Roach, NASUWT General Secretary, said:
 
“This offer, while a marginal improvement, is not a significant step forward on its predecessors, and is therefore unlikely to be welcomed by members.
 
“Teachers’ patience is wearing extremely thin. Our members expect and deserve a decent pay settlement.” 
 
Mike Corbett, NASUWT National Official Scotland, said:
 
“It appears to be Groundhog Day as far as ministers and COSLA are concerned, as once again we have been presented with an offer which is far from acceptable.
 
“They need to listen and recognise that our members are increasingly feeling the impact of the rising cost of living.
 
Members also want a pay offer which demonstrates the value of the challenging work they do and the risks they have taken to their own safety in continuing to maintain education provision for children and young people throughout this pandemic.
 
“The latest offer fails to meet these benchmarks.”
