SSTA Expresses Disgust

The Scottish Secondary Teachers' Association today expressed disgust at in the middle of continuing attempts to produce a Scottish solution to the Public Sector Pension fiasco the Scottish Parliament's Education and Culture Committee has failed to protect Scottish teachers by not opposing further increases in pension contributions.

Acting General Secretary Alan McKenzie this afternoon said “This extra tax on teachers imposed by the UK Government simply cannot be justified. It is difficult to defend the aspiration for a Scottish solution when the Education Committee cannot protect us. We are sailing closer to crisis in Scottish schools.”
