The SNCT Extended Joint Chairs (SSTA, EIS, Government and COSLA) meeting took place on Tuesday 26 February. The SNCT Teachers’ Side formally rejected the revised pay offer of 25 January.
The Teachers’ Side highlighted its willingness to participate in negotiations towards a settlement of the 2018-2019 pay claim. Both COSLA and Scottish Government were positive in response to this and expressed their commitment to a negotiated settlement. The Government was also keen to include teacher workload and other issues as part of a pay settlement.
COSLA and the Government are considering their positions and sought a further meeting of the Extended Joint Chairs. This has been arranged for Monday 4 March.
