The Employers (COSLA) made a formal offer on 6 September that was rejected by SNCT Teachers’ Side on the 18 September. No new offer was made and negotiations were ended by the Government on 4 October.

The 2018 Pay Offer

The Government regarded the offer as ‘fair and generous’.

This offer was for 3% across all SNCT grades except those over £80,000 who would receive a payment of £1,600. It also included a proposal to restructure Main Grade Salary Scale by reducing the number of points from 6 down to 5. This would have meant a higher starting (for those completing their probation) and finishing point (top of the scale point 5).
