The STRB recommended that all teachers should receive a pay rise of 3.5%, but Damian Hinds has said that only the 40% of teachers on the Main Pay Range should be awarded the recommended pay rise, ignoring teachers on the Upper Pay Range. Damian Hinds wants schools to fund the first 1% of the teacher pay rise from already-stretched budgets.
This is the final straw. The National Education Union is working together with the head teacher unions NAHT and ASCL to tell the Government that enough is enough.
Help us get the message to the Government by watching and sharing our video, and sending a letter to your school's MP.
Time is running out until the budget on 29th October and we need your help to put pressure on the Government. We're asking every teacher and leader in schools in England to write to their school's MP, asking them to put pressure on Damian Hinds to give our schools and colleges the funding they need.
