Pay Negotiations Press Release

The SSTA this morning stated that its position with regard to the salary package remains unchanged.  It remains accepted.  Alan McKenzie, Acting General Secretary stated “The SSTA did not conduct a ballot on the McCormac part of the salary offer. Congress of 2013 had accepted the McCormac recommendations that had emerged from the negotiating working groups of the SNCT.  Congress did not regard these changes as representing deterioration in conditions of service.  The view expressed was that they were measured and reasonable particularly in terms of the safeguards included.”

Further the SSTA indicated that it would not make comment on the balloting decisions and arrangements of other trade unions. To do so would be entirely inappropriate
