    Teachers get 2.45% pay rise

    Teachers in England and Wales will get pay rises above the 2% set by Prime Minister Gordon Brown.

    The three-year pay deal will mean increases of 2.45% in September 2008 and 2.3% in each of the following two years, says Schools Secretary Ed Balls.

    Describing teachers as the "backbone of our education system", Mr Balls said that the pay award was "fair and affordable for schools".


    Nurses are also being restricted to a 1.9% rise.

    So they bloody should get a pay rise, just like the rest of us should. The govt. are spitting out their usual BS of "interest rates are stuck at 2%" when in reality any sane person knows they are far far higher than that, and have been for a good while now. Year on year we are effectively taking a paycut.

    Im envious of this news as ive got my JE back saying im earning too much already, but i cant say them getting a payrise inline with inflation is wrong.

    IT staff get a payrise? That happens?

    Here's to a strike - we've had 2 now, every time the management changes. Creases me up..do I care who management is? Not really, no.

    We had one staff member disciplined for inciting the kids to abandon school as well.

    You can pretty much guarantee a strike. Combine this with the change in structure in teaching over the previous years, many teachers have ended up with a pay cut.

    But I doubt the government will budge much on it.

    Why do they insist that pay increases have to be 2% maximum? The RPI is around 4.5% is it not? Why do they insist on using the CPI for pay increase calculations? All that will happen is that we will enter a period of increased industrial action and unrest.

    I saw an interview on BBC News yesterday, Unison have lodged a 6% pay claim for 2008, on the basis that we have been paid below inflation increases for several years and have some catching up to do.

    The recent backdated award of 2.475% for 2007 was accepted reluctantly despite a very narrow margin in favour of strike action on the understanding that the unions would be seeking to restore earning levels in 2008.....
