Possible Strike Action

By O.I.S. | Posted: Friday May 26, 2023

NZEI Te Riu Roa primary teacher members have endorsed a one-day strike on Wednesday 31 May AND a ban on meetings outside of 8.30 am - 4.30 pm from 1-30 June. However, due to a process initiated by the Minister of Education to progress Collective Agreement negotiations, any decision on moving forward with these industrial actions has been paused by the NZEI Te Riu Roa National Executive until the 30th of May.

Strike action may still take place on 31 May if the NZEI Te Riu Roa National Executive and negotiations team feel insufficient progress has been made through the new process. If this happens Oamaru Intermediate School will be closed on the 31st of May.

If action does go ahead on Wednesday 31 May, strike notices and information about local community actions for teachers will go out on Sunday 28th May.
