Teachers salaries

Discussion of matter of public importance

MR SPEAKER: I have received a letter from Mr Pratt proposing that a matter of public importance be submitted to the Assembly, namely:

The state of teachers' salaries in the ACT.

MR PRATT (6.19): The matter of public importance that I bring to the attention of members concerns the state of teachers' salaries in the ACT. Teachers are reluctant to take strike action, but that is what they are being forced to do. Teachers are unhappy and there is a great deal of uncertainty in the community about what will happen to education in the coming months and years. This government, which is awash with new revenue, has failed to negotiate a meaningful EBA on time. It is treating teachers with disrespect. I am deeply concerned about the fact that the ACT Labor Government stalled on negotiating an enterprise bargaining agreement for government schoolteachers, which has brought this situation to a head.
