A new pay offer for Scotland's teachers has been shared with trade unions following a meeting of council leaders on Tuesday afternoon (14th February).
COSLA's Resources Spokesperson, Councillor Katie Hagmann, commented:
"Given the funding assurances received from the Scottish Government, Leaders have agreed to submit a revised offer to the Trade Unions tonight.
COSLA Leaders are clear that it is in all of our interests, not least those of children, young people and families, to conclude the teachers’ pay negotiations as quickly as we can to bring back stability and certainty in our schools.
We are determined to provide a fair and affordable pay offer to all our employees, including teachers."
