Media statement on PPTA announcement

"We are surprised the PPTA is already threatening strike action next year as they still have four days of agreed bargaining on behalf of their members ahead of them before the end of the year, and the Ministry is ready to schedule more,” says Ministry Deputy Secretary Ellen MacGregor-Reid.

The Ministry of Education and the Post Primary Teachers’ Association are scheduled to resume pay talks next week – 27 and 28 November.

“We are focused on doing everything we can to settle these negotiations and minimise disruption for students and parents – and we look forward to progressing talks with the PPTA next week."
