Strikes: Teachers await news from on-going intensive DfE talks

Officials from the Department for Education are locked in intensive talks this week with education unions in a bid to finally make headway in the on-going pay dispute.

The talks have been able to go ahead after the National Education Union (NEU) held the final of its planned national strikes last week and agreed not to announce any more dates for at least two weeks.

The National Association of Head Teachers (NAHT), the NASUWT, and the Association of School and College Leaders (ASCL) are also taking part in the talks.

A joint statement from the parties involved said: “The government and the education trade unions, Association of School and College Leaders, National Association of Head Teachers, NASUWT and National Education Union, have agreed to move into a period of intensive talks. The talks will focus on teacher pay, conditions and workload reduction.
