‘It needs to stop’: Premier ‘disappointed’ with planned teachers strike

Article image for ‘It needs to stop’: Premier ‘disappointed’ with planned teachers strike

NSW Premier Dominic Perrotett believes the strikes that will see all public and catholic school teachers walk off the job is “incredibly disappointing.”

Public and catholic school teachers will both go on strike Thursday, June 30, as part of their fight over pay and conditions.

The teachers are angry that the State Government won’t increase its three per cent pay rise offer.

Mr Perrotett told Jim Wilson it will be a “difficult time” for people across the state.

“It’s the taxes of everybody across our state that pays for the wages bill of the public sector,” he said.

“We are the only state in the country that has pay increases of up to three per cent.

“These strikes are politically motivated.”

Labor leader Chris Minns does not plan on calling the unions to stop the planned strikes.

Mr Minns told Jim Wilson he does implore the unions to open negotiations with the NSW Government.

“It doesn’t seem like the Education Minister, in particular, is interested in landing a deal here.”
