All four education unions have announced they will join a teachers strike on 22 October. The teachers will organise a one-hour strike, followed by a one-day strike and possibly indefinite strike. The unions say teachers feel tricked into accepting wage moderation by false promised made to them while their situation continues to deteriorate. Whereas teachers earned 30% above the national average wage in 2008, they currently earn below average wages. Promised improvements of salary grades have failed to materialise, leading to the announcement of industrial action.
