EIS delegates asked togo beyond top pay level

29th September 2000 at 01:00
DELEGATES TO the special general meeting of the Educational Institute of Scotland in Dundee tomorrow will be asked to commit its negotiators in the post-McCrone talks to go "considerably beyond" the top salary for basic grade classroom teachers, which the inquiry proposed should rise from pound;23,313 to pound;26,650 by April 2002.

Otherwise salaries should be "in line" with the McCrone report, a motion backed by the EIS executive councl and a string of local associations recommends.

The other key demands include a year's stable employment for all probationers, sabbaticals for all teachers, supply cover improvements, retention of the national agreement on absence cover, parity in class contact between primaries and secondaries, reduction in class sizes, no extension of the contractual year and better provisions for those who wish to retire early.
