The National Education Union (NEU) has voiced dissatisfaction with the current situation and believes teachers should receive better pay, pensions, workloads, funding and support. This follows other public sector workers who have received pay raises over recent years, such as police officers, nurses and firefighters.

If an agreement cannot be reached between the government and NEU, then school closures are likely to occur to minimise disruption to students’ learning. The government has stated that it is committed to improving the current situation and negotiating with unions.

The potential strike action has been met with mixed reactions from parents and students, who are concerned about how their education will be affected if teachers take industrial action. It remains to be seen whether an agreement can be made between the two parties to avoid disrupting students’ learning.

Regardless of the outcome, both sides must work together towards a resolution so that students can continue their education without interruption. The coming days and weeks will undoubtedly bring further developments as negotiations over pay and working conditions continue. In the meantime, everyone involved can only hope for a positive outcome that benefits all parties involved.

What do you think of the changes? Is it worth the consequences?
