United Kingdom - Teaching unions announce strike ballot Scotland - March 31, 2019

In a dispute over low pay, high workload and indiscipline the second Scottish teaching union announced plans to organise a ballot over strike action.

This offer included a 9% rise as of April 2019, consisting of a series of 3 times 3% increases. The first of the 3 pay rises would be backdated to April 2018 and the last one would be applied in April 2020.
