The National Association of Head Teachers (NAHT) is calling for clarification on the proposed increase in contribution rates before deciding on the government's current pension offer.
After extensive talks today (January 30) at a special meeting of the union’s National Executive, the NAHT decided too many questions remained unanswered.
Russell Hobby, general secretary of the NAHT, said: “This is a poor deal with grave consequences for the future of education system. It is also incomplete. We cannot sign up to it as it stands. While major issues are still on the table, particularly the contribution rate increase, our negotiators will continue to represent the interests of the entire school workforce.”
The union will continue to negotiate in good faith and without further industrial action until all outstanding issues are clarified.
