These model letters are part of a National Education Union toolkit for NEU members and representatives on pay progression. They will help you prepare for meetings about recommendations to deny pay progression and appeals hearings after a decision has been taken to deny pay progression.

Use them in conjunction with the rest of the Pay toolkit, which includes guidance documents on assessing and challenging school policies, on the rules of the pay progression system and on pursuing appeals, and a checklist to help you prepare for meetings.
