Area School ASTCA PUMs
The Area School Teachers Collective Agreement (ASTCA) expires on 7 April, 2019.
The PPTA and NZEI Te Riu Roa have both been engaged in major campaigns to address serious issues for both primary and secondary teachers. The issues for all teachers in the compulsory sector, being under-valued and having increasingly unmanageable workloads, are the same regardless of whether you teach in a secondary, primary or area school/wharekura.
Both unions have been advocating for significant enhancements to teachers’ terms and conditions of employment through the NZEI Kua Tae Te Wā and the PPTA Bring Out The Best campaigns.
In the week March 25-29, NZEI Te Riu Roa and PPTA are jointly convening paid union meetings for all teachers covered by the ASTCA. Prior to those meetings, we will be sending you the proposed claims for the renewal of your collective agreement.
