Teachers at the annual conference of the Association of Teachers and Lecturers (ATL) have voted unanimously to urge ministers to scrap their plans for performance related pay, and re-instate the former national pay structure.
This vote comes hot on the heels of the announcement last week that the two largest teaching unions would strike later this year, with the implementation of performance related pay being central to their decision. The ATL, considered to be the most moderate of the teachers organisations, has held back from such a move, arguing that their membership had not expressed a desire to follow suit.
