Ministry response to Area School Teachers Ballot Result

Please attribute to Iona Holsted, Secretary for Education

The Ministry welcomes the vote taken by area school teachers in favour of settling their collective agreement.

We look forward to progressing the Accord with NZEI and PPTA, to resolve complex issues in the education system, such as workload and the future education workforce, that area school teachers also want addressed.
