The NEU is campaigning for pay progression for all eligible members.
NEU campaign aims
- restoration of pay cuts education staff have suffered in real terms since 2010
- pay progression for all eligible staff and removal of PRP .
- all employers to use national pay scales.
The Government has confirmed its intention to freeze school teacher pay in England from 1 September 2021. The NEU has responded to the Government's announcement.
With inflation rising as the economy recovers from the pandemic, this unjustified and disgraceful decision will add to teachers' huge real terms pay losses since 2010.
Support staff face a below-inflation increase, which is equally unfair. Please see here for the latest information on support staff pay.
Teachers and support staff made an immense contribution through the pandemic and they deserve a fair pay increase in 2021 to begin to restore the pay losses since 2010.
We will be updating this page as we build our campaign for fair pay for all education workers.
