The local authorities employing Scotland's 55,000 teachers will propose a salary increase of no more than 3 per cent, according to The Scotsman (p6).
The proposal, formulated by Leaders of the Convention of Scottish Authorities, will be made at a meeting with union leaders on Friday, the Scottish Joint Negotiating Committee. It is worth less than a fifth of the increase teachers voted against accepting in a ballot of 98 per cent of them last month. The proposed increase falls short of the 3.6 per cent won by English teachers and the 3.3 per cent awarded to Scottish council employees earlier this year.
Glasgow City Council, the largest authority employing 7,500 teachers, has only set aside enough money to cover a 2.5 per cent rise. No other council appears to have budgeted for an increase higher than 3 per cent.
