COSLA RESPONSE TO TEACHER PAY STATEMENT AT EIS AGM 2017

A COSLA Spokesperson said: “The local government elections have delayed our re-engagement in pay talks with the Teachers Trade Unions but this should be rectified fairly soon.
 
“We did in fact propose to the EIS and others in March, in our opening discussions, that they should now accept the 1% uplift in pay on offer to all local government workers and we could deal with the other aspects of their claim later, but they declined that opportunity. This would have allowed the pay increase for teachers to be implemented in time for the April application date.
 
“We will arrange to meet with the Teachers Trade Unions as soon as the elected members who will lead the negotiations are appointed to the Scottish Negotiating Committee for Teachers (SNCT) Bargaining Group."
