Teaching unions have this afternoon rejected the latest pay offer for teachers in Scotland.

Scotland’s largest teaching union, the EIS, described the offer as “derisory” and said there was now “growing clamour” for industrial action.

The latest pay offer was unanimously rejected by the EIS salaries committee and, today, by teachers’ representatives at a meeting of the teachers’ panel of the SNCT (Scottish Negotiating Committee for Teachers).
