Teachers' Pay Dispute
INTO Northern Secretary, Gerry Murphy, commented …
“Teachers in Northern Ireland deserve a meaningful pay rise. Over the past decade they have been limited by successive administrations to three, one percent pay awards. These below inflation awards have seen teachers’ salaries devalued by approximately fifteen per cent in real terms.
INTO entered into talks with the managing authorities in good faith. While these negotiations of which pay is but one element continue, it would be premature to speculate on an outcome.
It remains the case that any outcome from this process will be subject to a ballot by INTO members.”
