Primary pay settlement reached

The NZEI and Ministry of Education have announced they have reached agreement on their collective agreement.

The settlement, between their union TE Riu Roa and the Ministry of , will give them a 2.75% pay rise from December 1st, along with a $300 lump sum payment. The collective agreements for both teachers and principals will expire in August 2012.

Well done to both parties on getting an agreement, and not going into 2011 with ongoing industrial action which tends to be a lose/lose – teachers lose wages and kids lose teaching time.

It will be interesting to see if the PPTA still refuses to budge with its claim.
