Teachers vote in favour of strike action

MEMBERS of the National Union of Teachers in Jersey have voted overwhelmingly in favour of possible strike action over the long-running public sector pay dispute.
More than 82 per cent of those who took part in a recent ballot said that they were prepared to take strike action and more than 94 per cent indicated that they would take other industrial action short of a strike.
It comes months after the States broke off talks and imposed a three-year pay deal of a one-off bonus last year, a one-off bonus and 1% rise this year and a 4% rise next year dependent on staff accepting changes to their terms and conditions.
