PRIMARY TEACHERS STRIKE FOR THIS WEDNESDAY
HAS BEEN CALLED OFF
Because of progress in discussions between the Minister of Education, Ministry and NZEI Te Riu Roa, the planned full day primary teachers' strike on 31st May 2023 will not proceed.
Instead of these strike actions, NZEI Te Riu Roa members covered by the Primary Teachers' Collective Agreement (PTCA) have been offered the opportunity to hold special paid union meetings in schools on Wednesday 31 May 2023 from 1pm- 3pm to reduce the disruption to school communities that would have resulted from a full day strike.
To recap: School will remain open this Wednesday
