United Kingdom - Teachers' unions call latest pay offer 'an insult' - February 29, 2016

Teaching unions have jointly rejected a pay offer from Northern Ireland's Department of Education (DE), describing it as an ‘insult’. The Northern Ireland Teachers Council (NITC), which represents the five teaching unions, said teachers were offered a 1% pay rise in 2016/17. They called the offer ‘derisory’ and claim it is a pay cut in real terms. A meeting between union representatives and DE officials broke up without agreement.
