Education news & jobs at the Times Higher Education Supplement

It was inevtiable that the impasse over the pay offer would lead to local bargaining, and I’m amazed the union negotiators didn’t do more to head it off, especially as they are apparently blessed with telepathic powers, according to this report, where the chair of the education committee says “ one member of the committee had asked union representatives why they had not put the employers’ offer to their members in a ballot.

And the unions had explained they felt this would waste time when they knew what the outcome would be.”
