Better Deal for Scotland's Teachers

Email your MSP to demand a better deal on teachers’ pay

The Scottish Negotiating Committee for Teachers (SNCT) Employers’ Side has proposed a miserly 1.22% pay award for teachers for 2021/22.

This offer is wholly inadequate in the context of increased cost of living pressures. It represents a further significant real-terms cut to teachers’ pay, compounding a decade of erosion in the value of teachers’ salaries at a time when more and more is being asked of teachers.

8 out of 10 teachers across Scotland believe the current pay offer is unfair and will damage morale.

The NASUWT is demanding urgent intervention from the Scottish Government to secure a better pay deal for teachers as part of a range of measures needed to ensure the continued support of the profession in securing children’s education recovery.

Please email your MSP to urge them to show their support for teachers by raising this issue directly with the Cabinet Secretary, Shirley-Anne Somerville MSP.

Your action today could help to bring employers back to the negotiating table with an improved offer that will deliver real progress towards pay restoration for teachers.
