Proposed settlement for primary teachers

Following strike action that saw primary and intermediate teachers disengage from the Ministry of Education, a new offer has been received.

Principals will discuss this offer at paid union meetings from 12 - 15 August and vote in an online ballot from 15 - 19 August.

What's in the proposed settlement for primary principals?

Key components of the offer

  • Pay parity with secondary principals across the roll, staffing and decile components of remuneration, with this being entrenched through a unified pay system
  • U1 rolled into U2 on the pay scale
  • Additional funding to ensure at least two adults in every school during the school day
  • Beyond an initial increase to achieve parity, there is a 3% per annum pay increase for three years on the roll and staffing components of remuneration
  • A one-off $1,500 (before tax) payment to NZEI Te Riu Roa members
  • An annual $300,000 professional development fund for primary principals
  • A three-year term for the agreement
  • The accord remains part of the terms of settlement. The accord will focus on appraisal, teacher only days, wellbeing, workload and the complexity of the principal role.
  • This offer does not include the limited additional CRT for U1 and U2 principals as offered previously
