Mullan welcomes resolution to teachers’ dispute

Sinn Féin MLA Karen Mullan has welcomed the news that the members of the five teaching unions have voted to support a deal which will settle the long running dispute over teachers’ pay.

The Foyle MLA said: 

“Years of cruel and crippling Tory austerity have left a devastating impact on our public services but particularly on our education system and our frontline teaching staff. 

“The substantial increase in the Department of Education’s budget by Finance Minister Conor Murphy for the coming year has made it possible to make this pay offer.  

“The agreement is about far more than pay and it is welcome that a resolution has been found on the wider issues of workload and the inspections process.

“I’m hopeful that we can see the new arrangements that arise from this agreement in place across all schools from September.”
