UCAC education union's National Executive has unanimously rejected the Government's latest offer on the Teachers' Pension Scheme, in a meeting in Aberystwyth today.
The union, which represents teachers and lecturers in Wales, wants to negotiate further with the Government, and will step up its campaign alongside other unions to press for improvements to the offer.
The option of taking further strike action remains open.
Elaine Edwards, UCAC 's General Secretary said “We consulted with members before coming to a decision, and the message has come back loud and clear: the Government's offer is totally unacceptable and teachers and lecturers are prepared to take further action to secure a fairer deal.”
· UCAC is a Wales-based union that represents school-teachers, head-teachers, FE and HE lecturers
