Last ditch

The Northland Age - - Local News -

NZEI Te Riu Roa prin­ci­pal and teacher mem­bers are be­ing ur­gently con­sulted on whether their ne­go­ti­at­ing teams should re­turn to fa­cil­i­ta­tion with the Min­istry of Ed­u­ca­tion through the Em­ploy­ment Re­la­tions Au­thor­ity (ERA). Both the NZEI and PPTA are plan­ning a ‘mega strike’ of teach­ers later this month. The Sec­re­tary for Ed­u­ca­tion, Iona Hol­sted, re­quested that the NZEI and the min­istry make a joint ap­pli­ca­tion to the ERA, but the union said its mem­bers needed to be con­sulted on such a de­ci­sion. Ms Hol­sted has since ad­vised union that the min­istry would not wait for mem­ber con­sul­ta­tion to be com­pleted, and would file a me­moran­dum with the ERA to­day yes­ter­day.
