Government and National Education Union agree deal over teachers' pay

Fri, 17 Jan 2020

The National Education Union (NEU) has reached an agreement in principle with the Manx Government in discussions over teachers’ pay.

A deal was struck after representatives from the Department of Education, Sport and Culture and the NEU held ‘engaging and positive talks’ with the Manx Industrial Relations Service (MIRS) on Wednesday.

The agreement will see all Isle of Man teachers move to the London Fringe Area pay range, retaining the link to the School Teachers Pay and Conditions Document (STPCD).

This would be implemented on 1 September 2020.

Under the agreement the two lowest teaching pay scales will also be removed, meaning new teachers will move from a starting salary of £24,373 to approximately £30,000.

The NEU will now consult with their members on the proposed deal.
