Members Briefing - Argyll & Bute - 21 JAN 2020

Members Briefing – Inveraray Inn Hotel – Tuesday 21 January

The General Secretary, Seamus Searson, would like to meet with members to discuss the issues that face secondary teachers.  This will include the new career structure and pay scales for teachers, the impact of the Government’s Empowerment Agenda and reducing teacher workload. In addition, Stuart McCullough, Independent Financial Advisor from Llife Ltd will be giving a presentation on Teacher pensions and the potential impact of the legal challenge (McCloud & Sargent) on the pension scheme.

The legal challenge will impact upon all teachers who were active members of the Teachers’ Pension Scheme prior to 31st March 2015.  Whilst this matter is not yet fully resolved and there is ongoing discussion the SSTA believe it is important that you understand the potential implications of this outcome and what this could mean to you and your retirement plans.
