The national employers have described this as their final offer.  In addition to the proposed increases detailed above, the employers have accepted the need for a review of term time working of school support staff.

At the moment this bulletin is for your information.  On 7th January there will be a national meeting of GMB senior lay representatives who will discuss this pay offer and decide what recommendation GMB should make.  Then GMB will hold a ballot of all members to vote for or against the offer.  As ever, you – the GMB – members will decide on your pay.

 

I will keep you informed.
