NASUWT: New research demolishes case for local and regional pay

The NASUWT, the largest teachers' union, has today published its evidence to the School Teachers' Review Body (Review Body) incorporating new research for the NASUWT by the Incomes Data Services (IDS) on local and regional pay.

Chris Keates, NASUWT General Secretary, said

"The new research, drawing on evidence of best practice from both the public and private sectors, demolishes the Coalition Government's case for local and regional pay.

“The research shows that the leading public and private sector organisations have national pay frameworks.

"The Secretary of State was a month late making his submission to the Review Body, presumably because of his desperate attempts to find any compelling evidence of the need for change."
