Yesterday, the Ministry tabled enhanced offers in a final bid to avoid the strike action. NZEI Te Riu Roa and the Ministry were unable to agree on an approach to consultation with NZEI Te Riu Roa members that would see strikes averted. Consequently, talks were suspended.
NZSTA is aware that strike notices were sent to boards late yesterday by NZEI Te Riu Roa. Boards should continue with contingency plans for the rolling strikes, scheduled to begin in Auckland on Monday. As always, NZSTA is available to assist and can be contacted on 0800 782 435 (option 2) or firstname.lastname@example.org.
